We’re being asked to classify K2O if it is a basic or acidic salt
The acidic ions are usually cations and include:
1. Transition metals with a charge of +2 or higher. Transition metals not satisfying this condition are neutral.
2. Main group metals with a charge of +3 or higher. Main group metals not satisfying this condition are neutral.
3. Amines, which are compounds that contain only N and H (i.e. NH3) or C, N, and H (i.e. CH3NH2)
a. neutral salt
b. acidic salt
c. basic salt
