    What's stopping you from doing a double replacement?

    Usually we have acid + base -> salt + water

    something around those lines

    Well, do you see why that may not be right?

    Just balance that and see what you get

    Ugh hold on OS is lagging. Is there a drawing or something?

    Technically it would be harder to pull of each subsequent proton from H3PO4, the first should be the easiest. Definitely agree with @astrophysics though

    If you write out the chemical equation it will be much clearer to you..

    Yes, I'm asking you to tell me

    Because if I do it, that's not very useful

    I think your problem lies in writing a chemical equation rather than understanding the question itself.

    \[AB + CD -> AD+BC\] this is a double replacement reaction

    Ohh so the answer is D! Thank you :)

    Yes, that also makes more sense, I was just trying to get that across :)

    It's Double replacement so you switch both your reactants AB + CD ----> AD + CB
