In the question, it asks to draw the lewis structures for the sulfite ion, hydrogen sulfite ion, perchlorate ion, and nitrite ion - for this class and the midterm, are we expected to know the structure of these ions just by looking at their name?

We are supposed to look at the name and get an idea of the structure. Like we know that Hydrogen is most probably going to be on the outside and we can tell by the valence electrons what is going to be the central atom.

For this midterm that we take we will not need to know the scientific names and will be given the molecular compounds. However, we will need to know the names of molecular compounds later on.
