Arrange the bond angle order of no2, no2-, no2+,no3- in descending manner.

NO2- < NO3- < NO2 < NO2+

As the number of lone pairs of electrons increases the repulsion on bond pair increases and tends to come closer. THis repulsion increases the electronegativity on the central atom and hence the bond angle decreases.
