Solution: You have a colorless solution in a beaker. To identify it you try to see if it will conduct electricity and you find that it does. Next, you place a drop of the solution on some red litmus paper and it doens't appear to do anything. Finally, you put a drop of the solution on some blue litmus paper and it turns red. Which is the best conclusion?1. This is actually just distilled water.2. The solution contains a base.3. The solution is neutral.4. The solution contains an acid. 

Problem

You have a colorless solution in a beaker. To identify it you try to see if it will conduct electricity and you find that it does. Next, you place a drop of the solution on some red litmus paper and it doens't appear to do anything. Finally, you put a drop of the solution on some blue litmus paper and it turns red. Which is the best conclusion?

1. This is actually just distilled water.

2. The solution contains a base.

3. The solution is neutral.

4. The solution contains an acid.
