Expert Answer

Step 1

Stronger the acid, weaker is its conjugate base. Stability is inversely proportional to the strength of an acid o base. Therefore, weakest base is the most stable. We know that HI is the strongest acid among HF, HBr and HCl. Therefore, its conjugate base i.e. I- is the weakest and...
