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

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.
