(b) Between $NH_3$ and $PH_3$, $PH_3$ is a better electron donor because the lone pair of electrons occupies spherical $sp^3$ orbital and is more directional
(c) Between $NH_3$ and $PH_3$, $NH_3$ is a better electron donor because the lone pair of electrons occupies spherical $sp^3$ orbital and is more directional
