Answer:

I think you have answered your own question.......

Explanation:

Likely, #NO^(3-)# is a typo, when #"nitrate anion"#, #NO_3^-# was intended. AFAIK there is no such beast as #NO^(3-)#. On the other hand, there is a #"nitride anion"#, #N_3^-#, the conjugate base of #"hydrazoic acid"#, #HN_3#.
