    CaCl2 will for sure not produce Hydrogen. I think 2H2O will produce 2H2 + O2.

    My reasoning is, The H2 and O2 is stable. However, in NaOH The Na has a positive charge and the OH has a negative charge (hence , it remains neutral). If 2OH for O2 + H2 The Na won't have anything to maintain it's neutrality.
