CH3F has more dipole moment since F is more electronegative as compared to chlorine and attracts the shared pair of electrons between CH3 and itself more towards itself.

if right approve plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

dipole moment depends on distance between atoms so CH3Cl has highest dipole moment than CH3F coz as the size of Cl is very large compared to F ...

dipole moment also depend on charge separation which is increased by electronegativity so

even electronegativity of florine is more but it is comparable to electronegativity of Cl so here

size of atom is dominating factor ...
