Step 1

Hydrogen bond: hydrogen bond is defined as the electrostatic attraction between the positively charged hydrogen atom in a molecule and negatively charged electronegative atom of the same molecule or another molecule.

An ion-dipole force is an attractive force that results from the electrostatic attraction between an ion and a neutral molecule that has a dipole.

Step 2

As Br- is ionic and water is polar molecule with partial positive charge on hydrogen and partial negative charge on oxygen. ...
