We are asked to look for the parts described in the diagram given.


Let analyze each statement one by one.

(a) The point where the pH corresponds to a solution of the weak base (B) in water.

● pH is determined only by the concentration of B → no titrant (strong acid) is added to the solution yet

 corresponds to the starting point
