Equilibrium vapor pressures

Compare the vapor pressures of methanol,ethanol,acetic acid, water, and benzene. Which compund appears to have the strongest intermolecular forces at 100C If one compound has a higher equilibrium vapr pressure than another at a particular temperature, will it necessarily have a higher equilibrium vapor pressure at all temperatures? If not, give an example of two compiounds whose vapor pressure curves cross, and at what temperture they have roughly the same vapor pressure.
