What is the difference between a weak and strong base?

A).Only some of the molecules of a weak base dissociate to produce hydroxide ions when mixed with water, but all of the molecules of a strong base dissociate to produce hydroxide ions.
B).Only some of the molecules of a weak base dissociate to produce hydrogen ions when mixed with water, but all of the molecules of a strong base dissociate to produce hydrogen ions.
C). Strong bases result in the production of hydronium, while weak bases produce hydroxide ions.
D).Strong bases react with acids to produce water, but weak bases do not react at all.

I believe the answer Is A). Is this correct?

    Is lithium hydroxide a strong or weak base? It is 100% ionized so, by definition, it is a strong base. Try looking up Kb for LiOH in a set of tables. It won't be there, further proof that it is not a weak base. thank you!
