how do we know whether a compound has highest hydrogen bonding or not? how

Strength of Hydrogen bond depends upon polarity of the bond which in turn depends upon difference of electronegativities of the bonded atoms.
More is the difference in electronegativity of H and other bonded atom, more polar will be the bond and stronger will be the H bond.
eg intermolecular H bond in HF molecules will be stronger than that in NH3 molecules as F is more electronegative than N.
