    $\begingroup$ Thank you so much. This wasn't a homework question. I was stuck on something, thus I thought of getting it clarified, but soon I figured out my mistake. So I AM actually trying to remove this question. Apologies for that, as I am a newbie here. So it's taking a bit time to figure out how does this work :) $\endgroup$ – Advdtii Dec 11 '17 at 15:12

    $\begingroup$ Sure, no prob. It's just the homework policy which is applied to the questions where no attempt has been shown. Others are not supposed to answer these questions, and they are typically end up closed. If you want, you can edit your thoughts in (or just the name of the compound you think is correct), so that others can actually help you with this:) $\endgroup$ – andselisk Dec 11 '17 at 15:24

    $\begingroup$ It's "sulfato" and not "sulphato". $\endgroup$ – Loong Dec 11 '17 at 18:01

    $\begingroup$ @Loong Actually "sulfate" is preferred by IUPAC and "sulphate" is from British English. (Courtesy: wikipedia) $\endgroup$ – Serotonin Dec 11 '17 at 18:16
