Which one of the following is a correct definition of a base that is not dependent upon the solvent?

Bases produce hydronium ions, Bases are protn donors, bases produce hydroxideions, or bases are proton aceptors

  • bases are proton aceptors.

  • uh if bases were proton donors that means they give off H+, and in reality are acids so that debunks 2 choices. if you don’t take into account solvent you only consider what the base itself can do not what it does in water so the choice should be clear
