Question

# In $${NO_{3}}^{-}$$ ion, number of bond pair and lone pair of electrons on nitrogen atom are :

A
2,2
B
3,2
C
1,3
D
4,0

Solution

## The correct option is D $$4,0$$According to the VSEPR theory, $$NO_3^-$$ is sp² hybridized with 3 sigma bond pairs, 1 pi bond pair and no lone pair on the central atom as shown in the figure. Its shape is trigonal planar.Hence, option D is correct.Chemistry
