sir my question was if there is more repulsiom between the non bonded atoms then the bond angle should be more . but then in water molecule instead being two non bonded pairs the bond angle is less thn ammonia

Expert Answer:

The repulsive force between lone pair and lone pair is more than the bonded pairs so H2O have two lone pairs that is why the bond angle is less.
