Question

The bond angle in AsH3 is greater than that in

Solution

Correct option is

None of these

BCl3 has bond angle equal to 120° (trigonal planar). NH3 and H2O havesp3 hybridisation but due to the presence of lone pair of electrons, they have bond angle less than 109°28' (NH3 - 107°, H2O – 104.5° ), AsH3(sp3 hybrid) has smaller bond angle than other molecules.
