Solution :-

In the periodic table, group 13 includes elements such as boron and thulium. +1 oxidation state gets more stable as you move down the group in this group. Due to the fact that B's +3 oxidation state is more stable than Tl's,BCl3 is more stable than TlCl3 . This is because Tl's +3 state is highly oxidizing and it quickly reverts back to its more stable +1 form.
