To answer this question you have to kind of understand that the answer was obtained before the explanation came about. Or the boiling points of these compounds were all known before hydrogen bonding was ever thought of....
The compound with the higher boiling point will be the one with increased hydrogen bonding.
Boiling point of acetic acid is 118 ...
