The question asks you to draw the Lewis structure for each species and identify if it's a lewis acid or base.
For part c) How do you know that Ag+ is a lewis acid?

We know that Ag+ is a Lewis acid because it can act as an electron pair acceptor. For example, in a reaction where ammonia reacts with a silver ion to form a silver diamine ion, ammonia would act as an electron pair donor to the silver ion, making the silver ion an electron pair acceptor (aka. a Lewis acid). Hope this helps!
