Step 2

Conjugate acid and base exist in pair and they do differ by just a proton.

A conjugate acid has one more hydrogen atom or positive charge than its conjugate base from which it is formed.

A conjugate base has one less hydrogen atom or negative charge than its conjugate acid from which it is formed.

Example – H2O is conjugate acid of OH- or OH- is conjugate base of H2O

Step 3

Thus to obtain the conjugate acid of the given base (CH3C&...
