does H-F form van der Waals forces and hydrogen bonding ? Is it polar? Is it all three? This was a true/false question I did but I'm unsure of my answer, I assumed it was true for all.

All three. All chemicals form van der waals forces, it's a very polar molecule - so strong dipole-dipole forces - and it does h-bonds because fluorine is the most electronegative element.

All covalent molecules can experience london forces (or instantaneous dipole-induce dipole interactions). The difference in electronegativity is greater than 0.4 so there are permanent dipole-permanent dipole interactions. nitrogen, oxygen, and fluorine bonded to hydrogen can all experience hydrogen bonding.

It experiences all 3
