Coordinate complex is positive in the given case as it is written first in the formula. As the carbonate ligand itself has -2 charge on it and ammonia ligand has zero charge, the net charge on Co is +3. Ammine ligand comes first before carbonato according to alphabetical order. Thus the complex is named as:
(i) Tetrachloridocuperate (ii)
Cu is the central element with +02 oxidation state and as there are 4 chloride ions the complex has -2 charge as a whole. Thus according to the IUPAC the structure is given as:
(ii) Potassium tetrahydroxozincate (ii)
The central element is Zn which has an oxidation state +2 igven by the number in the bracket. The 4 hydroxo groups are OH- ions and the complex in total has -2 negative charge.
Thus the structure is:
