Why are hydrophobic molecules such as fats and oils unable to dissolve in watery solutions?

    Water cannot interact with molecules with ionic bonds, such as fats and oils.
    Water cannot interact with hydrophobic molecules, such as fats and oils, because hydrophobic molecules form hydrogen bonds with each other, excluding the water.
    Water cannot interact with molecules that have polar covalent bonds, such as fats and oils.
    Water molecules form hydrogen bonds with each other, excluding the hydrophobic molecules.
