    N(cf3)3 has more bond angle than N(ch3)3 as cf3 is more group electronegativity than ch3. As here electronegativity of centre atom is same so we have to check the EN of surrounding atoms. On increase in EN of surrounding atoms, they comes closer to Central atom so there will be more repulsion. and more is the bond Angle. P(ch3)3 has least bond angle among these as it is similar to PH3 molecule and bond angle of nearly 98° falls under drago molecule
