The answer is: the conjugate acid for HCO₃⁻ is H₂CO₃.According To Bronsted-Lowry theory acid are proton donors and bases are acceptors of protons (the hydrogen cation, or H⁺). Hydrogencarbonate (HCO₃⁻) is the base of Bronsted and you can accept a proton and be conjugate acid (carbonic acid H₂CO₃):HCO₃⁻(aq) + H⁺(aq) → H₂CO₃(aq).
