Using the data in the table, which of the conjugate acids below is the weakest acid?

Base                           Kb 
ClO                         3.3x10-7                       
CO32-                        1.8x10-4                       
HS-                           1.8x10-7
NH2CH3                   4.4x10-4 

a. ClO

b. CO32-

c. HS- 

d. NH2CH3 


We’re being asked to identify which among the given bases have the strongest conjugate acid

Recall that strong bases have weak conjugate acid pair.
