- AUnreactive ions
- BUnbalanced ions
- CSpectator ions
- DBystander ions
- EWatching ions

To which side do electrons need to be added?
How many electrons need to be added?
Which of the following is not always conserved between the two sides of a balanced ionic equation?
- AThe total charge
- BThe sum of oxidation states
- CThe number of ions
- DThe number of electrons
- EThe number of atoms or ions of each element
