Answer key:

  1. (B,C)
  2. (C,D)
  3. (A,B)
  4. (C,D)

CH3COONa and K2CO3 are the salts of weak acid and strong base.

       Strong base NaOH and KOH

  1. (B,C)
  2. (A,E)

NaHCO3 + HCl → NaCl + H2O +CO2

  1. (B,C,D)

Glucose and alcohols are covalent compounds so they are poor conductors of electricity.
