    Yeah, though not particularly big as they're quite similar in electronegativity. You need to look if there's a difference in electroneg and its shape as to whether or not symmetry would cancel out, think of it as a tug of war.

    Yeah, permanent dipoles arise from differences in electronegativity, though as I said, they'll be quite small.
