The structure of $O_3$ and $N_3^-$ are

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\text{linerar and bent respectively}\\(b)\;\text{bent and linear respectively}\\(c)\;\text{both are linear}\\(d)\;\text{both are bent}\end{array}$

$O_3$ structure is bent
$N_3^-$ is linear in structure $[N\equiv N^+=N^-]$
Hence (b) is the correct answer.
