electrophiles: ${\text{H"^+, "CH}}_{3}^{+}$; nucleophiles: ${\text{Cl"^-, "OH}}^{-}$.

#### Explanation:

An electrophile is a reactant that can accept an electron pair to form a bond.

Most electrophiles have either a positive charge or an atom with an incomplete octet.

Examples are ${\text{H"^+, "CH}}_{3}^{+}$ and ${\text{AlCl}}_{3}$.

A nucleophile is a reactant that donates an electron pair to form a bond.

All molecules or ions with a free pair of electrons or a π bond can act as nucleophiles.

Examples of electrophiles are ${\text{Cl"^-, "OH}}^{-}$, and ${\text{CH"_2"=CH}}_{2}$.
