Concepts and reason
The conjugate acid of a base is formed by adding a proton (image ion) to the base. Similarly, the conjugate base of an acid is formed by removing a proton from the acid.

Fundamentals
According to Bronsted-Lowry theory an acid is a species which can donate a proton and base is a species which can accept a proton.

Answer:
imagecan acts a base and accepts a proton to form a conjugate acid. The conjugate acid of image is image

.

image is a base and it accepts a proton to form a conjugate acid. The conjugate acid of image

As image has -2 charge. On the addition of imageion, the charge becomes -1.
Add one hydrogen atom and charge (+1) to the base image.

imageis a base and it accepts a proton to form a conjugate acid. The conjugate acid of image

image

As image is neutral, by the addition of one proton, the resultant conjugate acid carries +1 charge.
