Answer: Hydrogen chloride gas, HCl, is an example of an acid Arrhenius, because it produces Hydrogen Ions ( H⁺ ) in water.Explanation: Acids and Bases are defined according to three different theories and concepts. i) Concept of Arrhenius (ii) Bronsted Lowry Theory (iii) Lewis TheoryAccording to Arrhenius Concept of Acid and Base, "Acid is any species that, when dissolved in water dissociates to produce H⁺ ions".Example: HCl → H⁺ + Cl⁻ H₂SO₄ → 2 H⁺ + SO₄2⁻, Whereas, Bases are species that, when dissolved in water produces Hydroxyl Ions (OH⁻)".Example: NaOH → Na⁺ + OH⁻ Mg(OH)₂ → Mg2⁺ + 2 OH⁻
