    To dry a gas, the drying agent should NOT react with the gas

    ammonia and water will form some amount of ammonium hydroxide, NH4OH. Then hydroxide will react with the acid hydrogen ions from H2SO4 and forms water, also, addition of an acid to even a weak base like NH4OH is counter of drying
