- ASpectator ions
- B Unbalanced ions
- C Watching ions
- D Unreactive ions
- E Bystander ions

- A Right
- B Left
How many electrons need to be added?
Which of the following is not always conserved between the two sides of a balanced ionic equation?
- A The number of ions
- B The number of atoms or ions of each element
- C The sum of oxidation states
- D The total charge
- E The number of electrons
