dear student,

The salt "R" will be a zinc salt , 

Following rzns will take place...

zinc ion: Zn2+(aq) + 2OH-(aq) ==> Zn(OH)2(s) a white precipitate formed

of zinc hydroxide, which dissolves in both excess (i) sodium hydroxide or (ii) ammonia to give a clear colourless solution:

(i) Zn(OH)2(s) + 2OH-(aq) ==> [Zn(OH)4]2-(aq)  (amphoteric behaviour because zinc hydroxide dissolves in acids too).

(ii) Zn(OH)2(s) + 4NH3(aq) ==> [Zn(NH3)4]2+(aq)  + 2OH-(aq) (soluble complex ion formation)
