Problem: How would one characterize the solution in a flask, at the equivalence point, for an experiment where 60.0mL of 0.40 M trimethylamine, (CH 3)3N (in the flask), is  titrated with 0.30 M  HNO3 (in the buret)? (a) the solution is now a weak base (b) the solution is now a weak acid (c) the solution is now a strong base (d) the solution is now a strong acid (e) it is now a neutral solution (f) it is now a  buffer solution
