  1. Technically, a weak acid/salt of the weak acid (or weak base/salt of the weak base) produces a buffered solution. Technically, again, with no concns listed in the answers, none of them will do. However, I think, in the spirit of the problem, that is understood to be equal concns of the mixture in A through E.
    A will do it.
    B is not a buffer but it has some buffering action versus acid. Adding a base makes a buffer.
    C. NO.
    D. No.
    E. No.
