The Lewis structure of NO molecule can be represented as

**: N . = : O : OR : N : = . O :**

It is observed that the total no. of unbonded electrons is odd. Therefore, there must be an incompletely filled subshell. Therefore, it is paramagnetic.

In NO+ , due to loss of 1 electron, the no. of unbonded electrons becomes even. Therefore, all subshells must be completely filled. Therefore, it is diamagnetic.
