Answer:

The reaction is tentative.........

#Cr_2(SO_4)_3(aq) + 3(NH_4)_2CO_3(aq)rarr (NH_4)_2SO_4(aq)+Cr_2(CO_3)_3(s)darr#

Explanation:

#A.# #2Cr^(3+) + 3CO_3^(2-) rarr Cr_2(CO_3)_3(s)darr# is the net ionic equation.

#B.# The spectator ions are #"ammonium ion"#, #NH_4^+#, and #"sulfate ion"#, #SO_4^(2-)#, which do not take part in the reaction, and remain in aqueous solution.
