  • Chemistry -

    The question is asking you (in a confusing way) to compare ionic bonds to INTERMOLECULAR attractions (attractions between neighboring molecules). The answer to that should not be much of a challenge. Consider the melting point of an ionic solid like sodium chloride to a molecular solid like wax. The higher the melting point the stronger the bonds that hold the solid together.

    I think the question is confusing, too.
