    a) UO2<+2>
    <br>Let x be the Oxidation Number (ON) of U. Then x - 2*2 = +2 which gives x = +6
    <br>Therefore, ON of U = +6
    <br>ON of O = -2
    <br>b) As2O3
    <br>Let x be the ON of As. Then 2x - 3*2 = 0 which gives x = +3
    <br>Therefore, ON of As = +3
    <br>ON of O = -2
    <br>c) NaBiO3
    <br>Let x be the ON ...
