If you draw out the Lewis structure, you can see that the formal charges on oxygen result in a 2- charge. In the context of the question, there is a table in the book listing charges of various molecules like SO4 2- or NH4+. I think it is something we need to memorize.

The chart that is posted on the class website lists the compounds and their charges that we need to know.
