(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The titration reaction of generic weak base (B) with a strong acid is given. The titration curve of this reaction is to be sketched. The given points are to be indicated on this curve.

Concept introduction:

Titration is a process to determine the amount of acid or base in a solution. The plot of solution pH as a function of the amount of titrant added is known as titration curve.

To sketch: The stoichiometric (equivalence) point of the given reaction on titration curve.

### Explanation of Solution

Explanation

The stated reaction is,

B+H+BH+

The point at which the base present is just enough to neutralize the initial acid is termed as the equivalence point.

Since, the given titration is of generic weak base (B) with strong acid
