    • sidharth

      beacause in N3H nitrogen has an oxidation state of -1/3 which is greater than -2 or -3 , which they show in other compounds…

    • sanjna

      Becoz the oxidizing state of N3H is -1/3 which is lowest than others …as rest of the cmpds have oxidizing state -1 , -2, and -3 which is higher than N3H
