Solution: Citric acid has four hydrogens bonded to oxygen. How does the hydrogen that is not an acidic proton differ from the other three?

Problem

Citric acid has four hydrogens bonded to oxygen. How does the hydrogen that is not an acidic proton differ from the other three?
Citric acid is a three carbon chain, joined by single bonds.  Each C is single bonded right to a C that is double bonded above to O and single bonded right to OH.  The middle C is single bonded left to OH, while the top and bottom Cs are single bonded to two Hs.
