I'm going to be taking an exam later this month (October 2019), and part of the exam will ask me to name a bunch of certain chord progressions. Most of the progressions that I need to study are long and complicated, and I could not figure out names for half of them. I need another user to help me name them, but it seems as if naming chord progressions aren't really on-topic here.

So this is my question: Are questions about naming certain chord progressions on-topic? (I really need to find an appropriate site to ask this.)

    Many music fans don't have the knowledge to read sheet music, even less identifying chord progressions.

    Music SE is the place for this kind of question. Note that asking for a transcription of the chords to a piece is off-topic there. But questions like "What is the chord sequence 'ii7 V7 I' called?" are allowed (although that particular example will almost certainly be a duplicate).

This is going to be a duplicate answer from a previous post about similar content:

I would say no as there's not really a point on a music fan's site. It dives way too much into actually playing and analyzing music then listening to or consuming it.

This is on topic on Music SE for example this is a question in the same vein.
