Answer:

Tin(IV) Chromate

Explanation:

#"Sn"# is the element Tin.
#"CrO"_4# is the chromate ion, which has a charge of #-2#
The total charge of the chromate ions is #-4#, so Tin must have a charge of #+4# to compensate. This means that Tin forms a #+4# ion and is denoted by a Roman Numeral IV in parentheses. Therefore, the full name is Tin(IV) Chromate.
