# Question #d6dd9

Because the charges of chloride and nitrate are $- 1$. You cannot achieve an anion that has a zero charge.
Bisulfate is ${\text{HSO}}_{4}^{-}$ and bicarbonate is ${\text{HCO}}_{3}^{-}$. However, nitrate is ${\text{NO}}_{3}^{-}$... if you add an ${\text{H}}^{+}$ to convert it to its conjugate acid, all you get is a neutral (and STRONG) acid, ${\text{HNO}}_{3}$. "Binitrate", by its naming scheme, would in theory be negatively charged, but nitric acid is clearly neutral. Thus, "binitrate" cannot exist.
What is the conjugate acid of ${\text{Cl}}^{-}$? Is it also strong?
