  1. This is really a question you need to know how to answer. It is a good test of the chemistry you know. For example,
    a. Most carbonates are insoluble. Most nitrates are soluble. So try dissolving in water.
    c. Cl and SO4. Add BaCl2. The sulfate gives a white ppt of BaSO4.

    cations:
    c. Most Fe^+3 solutions have a reddish brown color. Most Al^+3 solutions are colorless.
