    Answer:

    a. True

    Explanation:

    From the basic concepts of acids and bases, we know that when a base accepts a hydrogen ion (H⁺), it forms a conjugate acid which can accept again the H⁺ ion:

    B⁻ + H₂O ⇆ BH + OH⁻

    The stronger the base, the weaker the conjugate base. Thus, as more strength has a base, lesser strength will have the conjugate base (it will not be able to accept again the H⁺ ion). For example, when water (H₂O) loses its H⁺ , it forms the conjugate base OH⁻. So, OH⁻ is the stronger base that can exist in an aqueous solution.

    H₂O ⇆ H⁺ + OH⁻

    In fact, strong bases are hydroxides, such as NaOH or KOH.
