Step 1

Hello there,
 As per our guidelines we can only answer the first three sub parts of a question. So, there you go with the answer for the same.
In case you need answer for the remaining molecules as well, please re-post the question with specific details.A substance is defined as an acid or a base based on  its tendency to furnish  H+ and OH- ions on dissolving in water

And the substance which can not furnish either of H+ and OH- ions on dissolving in water.

When it comes to salts, the acidic or the basic nature can be identified by observing the strength of acid and base that were involved in formation of the salt.

A salt of strong base and strong acid  is  neutral .

A salt of strong base and weak acid  is basic

A salt of weak base and strong acid is acidic.

Applying the same concept, the following are being categorized

Step 2

a)         NaCl is a  Neutral salt:

Reason: The acid(HCl) and the base(NaOH) involved in formation of NaCl are strong.

Step 3

b) KNO2is a salt of strong base KOH and weak acid HNO2 s...
