2 Answer

  • It's B. by identifying the elements. 

    Reasons: 
    prefixes are only used for covalent compounds. 

    You don't include the number of atoms when you write the chemical name of a compound. 

    Subscripts are basically numbers that tell how many atoms of each element is in a compound. It does not identify the name of an element.
