Q 1233523442.     Although hexafluoroethane (`C_2F_6`, b.p. - `79°`C) and ethane (`C_2H_6`, b.p. - `89°`C) differ very much in their molecular weights, their boiling points differ only by `10°`C. This is due to
A

Neither of the two

B

nearly similar size of `F` and `H`

C

both (low polarizability) and (nearly similar size of `F` and `H`)

D

low polarizability of `F`
