Classify each statement as a property of ethers, alcohols, or both ethers and alcohols.

1. These compounds cannot form hydrogen bonds between themselves, but they can form hydrogen bonds with other compounds containing an O−HO−H , N−HN−H , or F−HF−H bond, such as water.

2. These compounds are water soluble if they have fewer than four carbon atoms.

3. When comparing ethers and alcohols of similar molecular weights, these compounds have the higher boiling point.
