Answer:

See below.

Explanation:

#HNO_3 -> H^+ + NO_3^-#

#HF# #rightleftharpoons# #H^+# + #F^-#

According to Arrhenius concept of acids and bases an acid ionizes in water to give #H^+# ions in the solution because acids are characterized by the presence of #H^+# ions.

According to above reactions, both #HNO_3# (completely) and #HF# (only partially) ionize in water giving #H^+# ions. So both are Arrhenius acids.
