    Answer:

    “hydrogen to oxygen”

    Explanation:

    Hydrogen bonds are formed when hydrogen is bonded to highly electronegative element such as Chlorine, fluorine, oxygen etc.

    In hydrogen bonding, the hydrogen atom of one molecule of water is attracted to the oxygen atom of another molecule of water via permanent dipole-dipole interaction.

    Hence, If you have 2 water molecules together, they always sit “hydrogen to oxygen” as a result of dipole – dipole interaction and  hydrogen bonding between water molecules.
