How do you find whether a pair of species are an acid-base pair?

You would determine whether two species are a conjugate acid-base pair by determining the number of H+'s that differentiate both species. Two species are considered a conjugate acid-base pair if they are related to each other by one H+. For example, HF and F- would be considered a conjugate acid-base pair since they differ by only one H+. HF would be considered the acid since it gives away an H+.
