Step 1

Acid-base reaction

An acid gives off its proton to a base in an acid base reaction. 

Step 2

Given here, in an acid-base neutralization reaction

38.74 mL of 0.500 M potassium hydroxide reacts with 50.00 mL of sulfuric acid solution.

Reaction

2KOH(aq) + H2SO4(aq) ---> K2SO4(aq) + 2H2O(l)

So, 2 moles of KOH is neutralized with 1 mole of H2SO4

Here,

moles = molarity x volume of solution

we have,

moles ...
