    a) acidic

    b) basic

    c) basic

    d) neutral

    e) basic

    If the the conjugate base of a weak acid is present (without the acid), it will make the solution basic

    If the the conjugate acid of a weak base is present (without the base), it will make the solution acidic

    The conjugate of a strong acid or base has no affect on pH
