Answer:

#"The net ionic equation is: "Ag^(+) + Cl^(-) rarr AgCl(s)darr#

Explanation:

And the lithium, and nitrate ions, are the spectator ions. In solution, the #Li^+#, and #NO_3^-# ions are along for the ride, and do not participate in the reaction. On the other hand, #"silver chloride"# is as soluble as a brick, and precipitates from solution as a curdy white solid.
