An alkyl carbanion has the structural formula of an alkyl group, like CH3, where the carbon is negatively charged.
An aryl carbanion has the structural formula of an aryl group, which I think is ring shaped. You can see this on page 146 in the organic chemistry book. However, this will not be on Quiz 3, I have heard.
