The dipole moment of CO2 is zero, which implies that:
carbon and oxygen have equal electronegativities.
carbon has no polar bond.
CO2 is a linear molecule.
carbon has bond moments of zero value.

Correct option is C)
CO2 has the structure as O=C=O in which there is bond dipole moment (C-O bond). But, as the dipole moment of one bond is cancelled by other, the structure of CO2 is a linear. So, CO2 has zero dipole moment because it is a linear molecule.
