16. Among the following, the correct statement. (a) Between NH and PH,, NH, isa better electron donor.becausethe lone parotelectrons occupies spherical 's orbital and is 1ess directional (b) Between NH, and PH4, PH, is a better electron donor because the lone pair of electrons occupies sp orbital and is more directional (c) Between NH, and PH,, NH, is a better electron donor because the lone pair of electrons occupies sp orbital and is more directional (d) Between NH, and PH, PH, is a better electron donor because the lone pair of electrons occupies spherical 's' orbital and is less directional .

    option C is correct meghna
  • Lingareddy thankyou
    the lone pair electrons present in S orbital but it is also participated in hybridization

    Basically NH₃ is a base due to the lone pair of electrons present on the Nitrogen atom which is available for donation. On the other hand PH₃ is also a base but its basic character...
