Will Arrhenius acids and bases be covered on the final?

According to the Acids and Bases outline, we have to know how to identify Bronsted acids and bases + Lewis acids and bases, so I don't think we need to worry about Arrhenius acids and bases.

An Arrhenius acid is a substance that dissociates in water to form hydrogen ions or protons. In other words, it increases the number of H+ ions in the water. In contrast, an Arrhenius base dissociates in water to form hydroxide ions, OH-. I'm pretty sure we should be comfortable with Lewis, bronsted-lowry and arrhenius
