Bronsted acid is a proton donor. Lewis acid is an electron acceptor. All Brønsted-Lowry acids are Lewis acids, but the reverse is not true.

For our class right now I believe that we are focusing on Bronsted acids

For the most part, when questions ask you to determine which compound is an "acid", they are referring to the Bronsted definition of an acid.
