    I am really not sure on this one! So I did a little research and found that when stomach acid is reduced this is the chemical formula: HCl + NaHCO3 → NaCl + H2CO3 So an OH appears so the pOH should increase and the pH should decrease so I would go with B but I am not positive with that though, Sorry!!

    Ok I see it now the way that it's worded gets a little tricky!
