Answer-

F-F<H-H<D-D  increasing order of bond dissociation enthalpy

In F-F high repulsion force is acting so breaking should be easy.

while in case of H-H and D-D, bond pair of D-D is more strongly attracted by the nucleus because of the higher nucleus mass in D2. we know that higher the attraction high is the bond strength.
