(P) atoms may share electrons with chlorine atoms, w/F atoms, or w/O atoms. Use the electronegativity values for P(2.1), Cl(3.0), F(4.0) and O(3.5) to rank the P-CL, P-F, and P-O bonds in order of decreasing attraction of the electrons for the P atom

Although the two atoms are sharing electrons, one gets a bigger share than the other because it has a greaterv electronegativity (capacity to attract electrons) 

Hence P-Cl, P-O, and P-F is the order of decreasing attraction for P
