17.31d

So it says to give the chemical formula of sodium bisoxalato(diaqua)ferrate (III) but my question is why oxalato is named before aqua? It says when naming the ligands, it should be named in alphabetical order, but it clearly isn't so why is it written like that.

This should be written as aqua before oxalato. We will be following the alphabetical naming convention for test 4 and final exam.
