    I think intramolecular bond is covalent and intermolecular is hydrogen

    i don't think electronegativity difference is large enough for it to be considered an ionic bond. i agree with 'vvvv' i think it's covalent and hydrogen bond

    It has to be hydrogen because hydrogen forms hydrogen bonds with flourine, oxygen and nitrogen. It has to be covalent because the difference in electronegativity between hydrogen and Nitrogen is less than 1.7

    Hydrogen electronegativity is 2.20
    Nitrogen electronegativity is 3.04
    Difference is 0.84

    hydrogen bonds can be inter and intramolecular..straight from kaplan
