How does too little acid cause gastric distress? A. More than enough acid is present to digest proteins, resulting in inadequate digestion of proteins. B. The pH of the stomach becomes so high that proteins are not digested properly. C. The pH of the stomach becomes so low that proteins are not digested properly. D. Neutrality is achieved so proteins are not digested properly.

    not sure, but I can probably throw out at least 1, maybe 2 choices as being nonsense. Can you?

    If you have too little acid in the stomach, will that make the pH go \(down\)?

    It will make it go up.

    the question says "too little acid", and option A says "more then enough acid".

    normal stomach acid has a pH under 2. Do you think it's terribly likely that the pH of the stomach will rise all the way to neutral?

    No I guess not.
