A monatomic ion refers to an ion composed of a single atom like H. The charge on this monatomic ion would be +1. The opposite of a monatomic ion would be a polyatomic ion like NH4+ or PO4-3. Hope this helped! :)

In context of this question, the monoatomic ion in part a would be both magnesium and arsenic. What the question refers to what it says "expected charges" is to balance the molecular formula so that the charges balance out between each monoatomic ion.
