[SOLVED] Isostructural species are those which have the same shape and hybridization.

Isostructural species are those which have the same shape and hybridization. Among the given species identify the isostructural pairs. 

(a) [NF3 and BF3]
(b) [BF4andNH+4]
(c) [BC13 and BrCl3]                           
(d) [NH3 and NO3 ]

Answer:

The best answer for Isostructural species is those which have the same shape and hybridization.

(b) NF3 is pyramidal whereas BFis planar triangular.
BF4 and NH+4 ions both are tetrahedral.
BC13 is triangular planar whereas BrCl3 is pyramidal.
NH3 is pyramidal whereas N03 is triangular planar.
