Step 2

The above structure does not allow any hydrogen bond formation beause there are neither donor sites nor acceptor sites. There is no formation of a dipole in the molecule but the molecule can undergo induced dipole formation which can cause the dispersion or london forces to be present. Thus, london forces are the strongest intermolecular forces present in cis-2pentene. 

Step 3

The structure of 1-butan...
