Expert Answer
(a) It is a stoichiometric defect.
 
(b) It is a Frenkel defect. In this an ion is missing from its correct lattice site and occupies interstitial site
      so the stoichiometry of the compound is maintained.
 
(c)  Silver halides show this type of defects because the size of Ag+ is similar to the size of voids.
       So the Ag+ ions can move to the interstitial sites.
