For CN minus, the name is cyanido but how come the answer for part C is aquapentaCYANOcobaltate(III) ion? When do we use cyano and when do we use cyanido?

Cyanido is the new naming system while cyano is the old one. I'm pretty sure either will be accepted/expected on a test. It's useful to refer to the pdf that's on Dr. Lavelle's website for chem14A as a reference sheet while going through the homework problems.

They mean the same thing, so either is fine
