Question

# Which of the following is the conjugate acid of $$HPO_{4}^{-2}$$?

A
H2PO4
B
PO34
C
H3PO4
D
H3O+

Solution

## The correct option is A $$H_{2}PO_{4}^{-}$$When a base accepts a proton, the resulting species is its conjugate acid.Now, when $$HPO_4^{2-}$$ accepts a proton, it gives $$H_2PO_4^-$$.Hence, $$H_2PO_4^-$$ is the conjugate acid of $$HPO_4^{2-}$$Chemistry
