  1. CH3OH will. The oxygen is highly electronegative and it can be attracted to the H atom of another molecule and that forms a H bond. Look for H bonding in atoms with OH, NH, HF (FH) bonds. The O in CH3OCH3 does not form a H bond with another molecule because the H atom doesn't have the net positive charge it does in HF, NH3, and H2O. Others in your post will, also.
