Which bonds in ethylene glycol are polar and which are non polar?

1. Ethylene glycol, C2H6O2, used as a coolant and antifreeze, has a density of 1.11g/mL. As a sweet-tasting liquid, it can be appealing to pets and small children, but it can be toxic with an LD50 (lethal dose) of 4700 mg/kg. Its accidental ingestion can cause kidney damage and difficulty with breathing. In the body, ethylene glycol is converted to another toxic substance, oxalic acid, H2C2O4. a.
