In the following multiple choice tests, we often abbreviate $ H_3O^+ $ by $ H^+ $ ( Which is actually false, indeed, $ H^+ $ is always fully hydrated in water!)
Which of the following species is amphoteric ? i) H+ ii) OH- iii) H2O iv) H3O+
a) iii) alone only b) ii) and iii) only c) iii) and iv) only d) ii), iii) and iv) e) all
