Which alcohol has the strongest intermolecular force of attraction? The weakest? Explain.

A. 1-Propanol
B. 1-Butanol
C. n-pentane
D. n-hexane
E. methanol
F. ethanol

We shall be happy to critique your thinking. Hint: look at the hydrogen bonding from the alcohols (and hydrogen bonding isn't present in n-pentane and n-hexane.)
