If for example we have the salt NaCl and dissolve it in water, we get Na + and Cl-. How can we know of that compound from the cation and the anion?

If you have three baskets that each one has apples and pears and scatter them all three on the ground, then you will not know where it comes from a PEAR or Apple in particular. When your strips salt water passes it will have Na + and Cl - ions but you will not be able to know whether they were water, or salt that you threw. Not be if I well understood the question, and you have answered what they wanted to know.
