Solution

The correct option is C

It has lesser degree of ionisation


Explanation:

  • Sulfuric acid (H2SO4) is a strong acid as it ionizes to a greater extent.
  • Acetic acid (CH3COOH) is a weak acid as it ionizes to a smaller extent.
  • Acetic acid is weak acid than sulfuric acid because it has a lesser degree of ionization.

Therefore, the correct option is (C)
