H2O is the base since it will receive a proton
HCl is the acid since it will releases a proton
H3O is the conjugate acid since it has received a proton
Cl is the conjugate base since it has released a proton
So H2O is the base
Btw this question would fit better in the chemistry section
Ok. Thank you so much. I thought it was posted in the chemistry section. Whoops.
