We will use the Stock system to name this lead compound. Because sulfate has a -2 charge, lead would have to have a +2 charge in order for the compound to have a neutral charge. In the Stock system, a Roman numeral would denote the charge of the ion. Therefore, this lead ion would be the lead (II) ion with a charge of +2. The correct name of this compound would be lead (II) sulfate, option c).
