Chemistry

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....

    Can you tell if I'm correct. Which combination in titration has ph=pka and buffer region strong acid-strong base- no to both strong acid-weak base- yes to both weak acid-strong base- yes to both weak acid-weak base- I'm not sure
