🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Billman's class at Abilene Christian University.

Solution: If Ka of HXO3 is > than Ka of HZO3 at 25°C, then it is most likely that:a. X is more electronegative than Zb. X exhibits a higher oxidation state than Zc. The H―X bond is weaker than the H―Z bondd. HXO3(aq) + ZO3−(aq) ⇌ XO3−(aq) + HZO3(aq) is reactant-favored at 25°Ce. Z is larger than X

Problem

If Ka of HXO3 is > than Ka of HZO3 at 25°C, then it is most likely that:

a. X is more electronegative than Z

b. X exhibits a higher oxidation state than Z

c. The H―X bond is weaker than the H―Z bond

d. HXO3(aq) + ZO3(aq) ⇌ XO3(aq) + HZO3(aq) is reactant-favored at 25°C

e. Z is larger than X
