Which of the following are properties of basic solutions?
a.They turn the dye litmus red.
b.They taste sour.
c.They feel slippery.
d.They react with active metals to produce hydrogen gas.

  • chemistry -

    Both c and d are correct BUT if you are using a keyed on-line database, d may be counted wrong because most remember that as an acid reaction. Turns out that both acids and bases will produce hydrogen gas from active metals.
