I think you are referring to problem 7 in Fundamentals J. A neutralization reaction is an acid and base reacting to form a salt and water. If we are given the salt and know that water is always produced, we just have to find the two reactants. For part A, for instance, we are given the salt KBr and asked to write the neutralization reaction. K has to be part of the base because bases have OH which is negative so need a positive charge. Br is part of the acid because acids usually have an H which is positive and Br is negative. Balance the charges of the molecules and the reaction as a whole and you have the neutralization reaction.
