Solution

The correct option is D NH2,PCl3,NH2

H=12[V+MC+A]

where,
H = Number of orbitals involved in hybridization.
V = Valence electrons of the central atom.
M = Number of monovalent atoms linked to the central atom.
C = Charge of the cation.
A = Charge of the anion.

NH2=12[5+2+1]=4=sp3
PCl3=12[5+3]=4=sp3
NH2=12[5+1+2]=4=sp3
