b) The bond angle decreases on moving down the group due to decrease in bond pair-bond pair repulsion.

NH3 PH3 ASH3 SbH3 BiH3

107° 94° 92° 91° 90°

NOTE : This can also be explained by the fact that as the size of central atom increases sp3 hybrid orbital becomes more distinct with increasing size of central atom i.e. pure p- orbitals are utilized in M-H bonding
