    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    The following substances have approximately the same relative molecular mass. Which is likely to have the highest boiling point?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I chose E as it has OH so therefore hydrogen bonding. Is this correct?

    Yes, that is correct for the reason you state. It is possible to look up the boiling points of these compounds to confirm your answer.
