Answer : $\;AB_{3}$
Explanation :
As 'A' atom are present at the 8 corners of the cube therefore no of atoms of A in the unit cell = $\;\large\frac{1}{8} \times \normalsize 8=1\;$
As 'B' atoms present at the face corners of the cube therefore no of atoms of B in the unit cell = $\;\large\frac{1}{2} \times \normalsize 6=3\;$
Hence the formula of compound is $\;AB_{3}\;$
