Solution

There are 3 types of acids on the basis of the number of hydrogen ions
They are:⇒
1)Monobasic acids-Eg HCl(Hydrochloric acid),HFl(Hydroflouric acid),HBr(Hydrobromic acid) & CH3COOH(Acetic acid)
2)Dibasic acids-Eg H2CO3(Carbonic acid),H2SO3(Sulphurous acid),H2SO4(Sulphuric acid) & H2C2O4(Oxalic acid)
3)Tribasic acids-Eg H3PO4(Phosphoric acid) & H3PO3(Phosphorous acid)

so , second is true

first one is false because
a mineral acid is defined as a water-soluble acid derived from inorganic minerals by chemical reaction as opposed to organic acids (e.g. acetic acid, formic acid).
