In this exercise we are given two different bonds and we need to say which bond is shorter.

To do this we must know that bonds between larger atoms are longer than between smaller ones, more polar bonds (large difference in electronegativity) are shorter, and single bonds are longer than double bonds while double bonds are longer than triple bonds.
