Answer-

Non-stoichiometric hydrides are hydrogen deficient compounds. they are formed by d & f block elements. Such hydrides do not follow the law of constant composition. 

Examples- LaH_{2.87},YbH_{2.55},ZrH_{1.3-1.75} etc.

Alkali metals do not form these types of hydrides. Alkali metals form stoichiometric hydrides. These hydrides are ionic in nature.
