    pH= - log ([H+]) In other words, the higher the pH the lower de hydrogen ion concentration Also, a solution that is low in hydrogen ions and thus has a pH above 7 is called a basic solution and a solution that is high in hydrogen ions and thus has a pH lower than 7 is an acid. So in this case, the solution is basic and has a low hydrogen ion concentration

    acidic solutions have pH of less than 7, lower the pH, more the acidic solution. alkaline/basic solution have pH value more than 7, higher the pH, more alkaline the solution. An alkaline is a base that is very soluble in water.I'd go for B, because no testing has been done for other alkaline properties.
