How to differentiate

How do you differentiate between bronsted acids, bases and conjugate acid and base?

The Bronsted acids and bases are the reactants, which are the original molecules that do the accepting or donating of protons. The conjugates are the products. The acid corresponds with a conjugate base, while a base corresponds with a conjugate acid.

See how the water was the base and becomes hydronium, which Is the conjugate acid because that hydronium can now function as an acid in a different reaction or in equilibrium.
