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!)

How do weak bases react with water?

A) They give up protons while leaving OH - ions in solution B) They achieve an equilibrium with their conjugated acids C) They accept protons to form $ H_3O^+ $ D) They hydrolyse to form stronger bases

Here's the correct answer: b) They achieve an equilibrium with their conjugated acids
