Why is Krypton larger in size than bromine,even if atomic radius decreases while going from left to right across a period?

the atomic size of Krypton is larger than Bromine.

Bond angles of PF3 and PCl3

In case of PF3 the size of F is small and thus it approaches near to the central atom that is P. as it approaches near to P there comes the repulsion between the bond pairs, which widens the bond angle and makes it larger than in case of PCl3. Here two types of forces
