    I seen another thread you took an AAMC today, so it's very likely these are AAMC related questions. If they are, that's extremely selfish of you to not specify that in the title. There's a warning on top for a reason. Many people, myself included haven't taken some of the practice tests.

    Copper has multiple valences (both 1 and 2) so I don't think you can just know what its valance is unless it's in a compound.

    Oh! I guess that makes sense. I suppose I should know the two you wrote on the paper and then deduce the rest knowing the different charges it could be.
