Membrane transport

In neurones, sodium and potassium ions are transported to either the inside or outside of the cell. Deduce which method(s) of membrane transport would be appropriate for this movement

Can I talk about Active transport?

Also for a deduce type of question is stating the name enough?

It might be safer to explain why that specific membrane transport is used for transporting sodium and potassium ions.

Active transport. Sodium potassium is an active transport that exchanges sodium ions for potassium ions.

Is active transport right answer or??
