 A.

small size of fluorine atom

 B.

its high electro negativity

 C.

availability of d-orbitals

 D.

strong F - F bond

 Hide Ans

Solution:
Option(B) is correct

Flourine is the lightest halogen and exists as a highly toxic pale yellow diatomic gas at standard conditions. As the most electronegative element, it is extremely reactive: almost all other elements, including some noble gases, form compounds with fluorine.
