Hi Jauneet,

Let us consider the example:

Na2SO4 and Na2SO3

sodium sulpate and sodium sulphite

there is no particular number or oxidation state for which we name them as -ate -ite -ous

but -ate>-ite>-ous is the order according to the Number of oxigens attached to the element(in above example element is S)

-ide is used when there is no O

Na2S.... sodium sulphide.
