Problem: When an acid solution is titrated with a standard base solution, separate burets are sometimes used for each solution. Which mistake would necessitate emptying and refilling burets, and starting the titration over?(A) starting with less acid than called for by the procedure (B) adding distilled water to the titration flask after a solution was measured into it from the buret(C) overshooting the endpoint (D) allowing drops of distilled water to stay in the burets while filling them
