The question is poorly worded and poorly stated, I guess what you are asking is whether for a balanced reaction equation total number of atoms of each element on LHS and RHS is identical. Yes, that's the definition of "balanced". That's just a mass conservation, atoms don't appear or disappear at random. Same about charge, if there are ions involved total charge on LHS and RHS must be identical too. When they are not, the reaction is not balanced.
