Did the nitrate ion effect the color emission of the solution ? how did you decide ?
my answer: No , because The nitrate ion is the oxidizing agent in the compound without it you could not burn the chemicals and you could not produce a spectrum so there would be no emission of color
is that right ??

    From the question and your answer I assume you are testing some metal and using chlorides, nitrates and/or other anions but the same metal. You are correct that there is no difference in the color of the spectrum due to the metal but the rest of your argument makes no sense. LiCl produces the same color as LiNO3.
