I think you're right because they all have 6 electrons in their outer shells so if they make 3 triple bonds all the electrons will be used so there will be no lone pairs, plus its definitely covalent as it is two non metals.
Thank you @jebonna
Its alright but get a second opinion as im not 100% sure

I think its D actually because oxygen forms a double bond with itself and as they all have 6 electrons in its outer shell, it would need only 2 more to get a full outer shell (or noble gas structure). To do that it would form a double bond with another element from the same group where each of them would get 2 more electrons each :)
