How would you determine which compound is an acid and a base in the equation on question 6A.5?

The acid which would be HNO3 would be determined because acids usually have a H atom attached to it and you can see that the conjugate base to the HNO3 would be NO3-. As for the base, it will be HPO4^2- because you can see that its conjugate acid, which is H2PO4-, has a one extra H atom attached to it as well as the charge increased by one.
