Thanks for asking us a question in Ask the Expert section of TopperLearning.com.

 In case of multiple questions within a query, please post each question individually and let us know where you are getting stuck so that we would be able to explain things better.

 
Solution for your first query:
 
Did you mean NH3, NH4+ and NH2- instead of NH3, NH3+, NH3-?
 
The bond angle for NH3 is 107o
The bond angle for NH4+ is 109.5o
The bond angle for NH2- 104.5o
