I am having difficulty predicting products of chemical reactions examples. Please review my work and give me feedback:

AgNO3 + NaBrO3 -> AgO3 + NaNO3 + Br
Hg2S + NH4NO3 -> Hg2N2H2 + SO3
Pb(OH)2 + CuNO3 -> PbNO3 + Cu(OH)2
Li + SnOH -> LiOH + Sn.

The correct answer should be:
AgNO3 + NaBrO3 -> AgBr + NaNO3 + 3/2 O2 : modified
This is because, the Ag always forms a precipitate with Br, NaNO3 is soluble in ...

Solution Summary

The solution provides feedback to the predictions made by the asker, explaining what was correct and what was not clearly in each case and concludes with general advice for similar problems in the future.

VSEPR model to predict the probable shapes

1. Use the VSEPR model to predict the probable shapes of (a) PCl4+, (b) PCl4-, (c) AsCl5.

2. Give balanced chemical equations for each of the following reactions.
(a) Oxidation of P4 with excess oxygen, (b) reaction of the product from part (a) with excess water, (c) reaction of the product from part (b) with a solution of CaCl2 and name the product.

3. State whether the following oxides are acidic, basic, neutral, or amphoteric: CO2, P2O5, SO3, MgO, K2O, Al2O3, CO.

4. Rank the following species from the strongest reducing agent to the strongest oxidizing agent: SO42-, SO32-, O3SO2SO32-.

5. SF4 reacts with BF3 to form [sF3] [BF4]. Use VSEPR theory to predict the shapes of the cation and anion.
