If an equal number of moles of the weak acid HOCN and the strong base KOH are added to water, the resulting solution will be acidic, basic or neutral?

There is a complicated answer and a sensible answer. Both arrive at the same answer. But here is the logic for the sensible--I will let you decide.

A STRONG base and a WEAK acid will give a salt that is ??????

A STRONG base and a STRONG acid will give a salt that is neutral.

A WEAK base and a WEAK acid will give a salt that is neutral (if the base and acid are equally weak).

A WEAK base and a STRONG acid will give a salt that is acid.

A STRONG base and a WEAK acid....
