Acids have the ability to take on an extra electron while bases have the ability to give an extra, therefore Ag+ would be the acid cause it requires an electron to have a neutral charge and F- is a base because it needs to get rid of an electron to have a neutral charge.
For this question, it was asking about lewis acids and lewis bases. Lewis acids accept electrons and lewis bases donate electrons. Ag+ can accept electrons which makes it an acid, while F- can donate an electron which makes it a base.
