as oxygen chloride is has more bond lenghth than oxygen floride nd also has more bond angle,can we say that dis is bcoz chlourine is more electronegative than florine?

The bond length of oxygen chloride is more than oxygen fluoride because chlorine is larger in size than fluorine.
The bond angle of oxygen chloride is more than oxygen fluoride because fluorine is more electronegative than chlorine. Fluorine withdraw the electron from oxygen atom,so repulsion between electron decreases and bond angle also decreases while oxygen is more electronegative than chlorine and it withdraw the electrons from chlorine atom,so repulsion between electron increases and bond angle also increases.
