The information given in the question is not sufficient to determine the acidity of the solution. This is because, the acidity can only be found with the equation: pH = -log [H+]. In order to determine the acidity of the solution, the half titration point value is required, this will make it possible to determine the value of H30+. If the mid-point of the titration value is known, then Ka will be equivalent to pH, and the value will be evaluated from the equation: log (1.6 * 10^-10).
