Are we expected to know how to name acids? For example, in question 6A.7, the problem asks us to name the acid:

6A.7 Below are molecular models of two oxoacids. Write the name of each acid and then draw the model of its conjugate base. (I don't have the molecules shown)

Given that Dr. Lavelle assigned the problem and didn't omit this part, I would say know how to name acids and bases to be safe. However, definitely ask your TA as there isn't anything specific on naming acids or bases on Lavelle's test topics for Acids and Bases.
