The order of MO energies in B2, C2, and N2 is different from the order in O2, F2, and Ne2 This is due to __________.

a. less effective overlap of p orbitals in O2, F2, and Ne2
b. the more metallic character of boron, carbon and nitrogen as compared to oxygen, fluorine, and neon
c. greater 2s-2p interaction in O2, F2, and Ne2
d. greater 2s-2p interaction in B2, C2, and N2
e. less effective overlap of p orbitals in B2, C2, and N2
