How do you know what is ionic and what isn't?

For part b and c it's obvious because there's a metal involved, but for ammonium chloride, they are all nonmetals.

Although ionic compounds usually occur between metals and nonmetals, there are a few exceptions, such as ammonium chloride, which is an ionic compound. Its expected to it to be molecular because it contains only nonmetals. But it contains the NH4+ (ammonium) ion, combined with a chloride ion. Hope this helps!
