Recall:

  • An oxide that combines with water to give an acid is termed as an acidic oxide.
  • The oxide that gives a base in water is known as a basic oxide.
  • An amphoteric solution is a substance that can chemically react as either acid or base.
  • However, it is also possible for an oxide to be neither acidic nor basic, but is a neutral oxide.
