Inorganic chemistry tests

What are these tests for and how would you identify the compounds?? I don't know if all of these tests have been covered in AS chemistry so far...

If you are doing AQA spec, then you would know these from AS and GCSE.

Group 2 metal hydroxides solubility in water increase down a group.
Group 2 metal sulfates solubility in water decrease down a group.

Halides are mainly soluble, AgCl is an exception.
When CO2 is released, it hints that there may be a CO3 ion component in the compound.

With these information, the identities of the compounds can be found.
