    It is a ____________ acid

    • A.

      Strong

    • B.

      Weak

    • C.

      Moderately strong

    Correct Answer
    A. Strong
    Explanation
    The given correct answer is "strong". This suggests that the acid being referred to in the question is a strong acid. Strong acids are those that completely dissociate into ions in water, resulting in a high concentration of hydrogen ions. These acids have a low pH and are highly corrosive. Examples of strong acids include hydrochloric acid (HCl) and sulfuric acid (H2SO4).

    It is also a/an ____________ agent

    • A.

      Rusting

    • B.

      Oxidizing

    • C.

      Reducing

    Correct Answer
    B. Oxidizing
    Explanation
    Oxidizing agents are substances that cause oxidation, which involves the loss of electrons or an increase in oxidation state. They are capable of accepting electrons from other substances, thereby causing those substances to be oxidized. In the given question, the blank is asking for the type of agent that is associated with rusting. Rusting is a chemical reaction that occurs when iron or steel reacts with oxygen in the presence of water, leading to the formation of iron oxide. This reaction is an example of oxidation, where iron loses electrons to oxygen. Therefore, the correct answer is oxidizing.
