A. [NF3 and BF3 ]

B. [BF4- and NH4+ ]

C. [BCl3 and BrCl3]

D. [NH3 and NO3-]

Answer :

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

NF3 is pyramidal whereas BF3 is planar triangular.
BF4 and NH+4 ions both are tetrahedral.
BCl3 is a triangular planar whereas BrCl3 is pyramidal.
NH3 is pyramidal whereas NO3 is a triangular planar.
