    Well, there are only 3 functional groups that are ionisable under mild aqueous conditions: carboxylic acids (weakly acidic), amines (weakly basic), and phenols (weakly acidic). Identify all of the functional groups of each drug and then identify which drugs also contain those ionisable functional groups.

    Hope this helps
