Hi this is regarding my earlier post as to whether H2SO4 is a carboxylic acid
If it is not a carboxylic acid, what can it be?

Is it possible Sulfuric Acid?

No, H2SO4 definitely is not a carboxylic acid. Carboxylic acids are organic acids with the functional group of -COOH usually written as RCOOH. where R stands for anything else attached. H2SO4 is called a mineral acid. Other mineral acids are hydrochloric acid, nitric acid, phosphoric acid, etc. Mineral acids range from the very strong (HNO3) to the very weak (boric acid).

none of the above.

a mineral acid is none of those. Have you looked up those terms?

Sorry there are more options
I have looked up all terms

none of those either.
