Find the bond interactions responsible for Xenon has to be liquefied

I'd say that because noble gases are non-polar atoms, the only force that applies to them is the London force.
If you want a liquid phase, you need to have forces between the atoms / molecules that constitute this liquid (forces too strong would lead to solid state).
So because London force is the only one that applies on noble gases molecules, they are necessary to liquify to gases.

@dikshant-gautam I get your answer. But London forces mean induced dipole- induced dipole interactions. But the answer given is instantaneous dipole-induced dipole interactions. Can you explain the reason
