ammonia does not form hydrogen bonding.So there is no grouping of molecules. hence ammonia is gas at room temperature.

That is because ammonia's boiling point is -33.34 Celsius or -28

Fahrenheit. The average household temperature is about 28 to 32

Celsius depending where you live but wherever it is, it is

definitely above the boiling point of ammonia.
