One mole of NH3 has one lone pair. So three moles of NH3 will have three lone pairs of electrons

The NH3 molecule has tetrahedral geometry.
Since the valency of N is 5
It forms 3 single bonds with Hydrogen
And the 2 remaining electrons contribute to 1 lone pair.
Hence , NH3 forms 1 lone pair and 3 bond pairs.

NH3 molecules have 3 bonded pairs of electrons.

It is SP3 hybridised..So have 3 bond pairs with 3 H atom and one lone pair.
