A Bronsted-Lowry acid is a proton donor (usually hydrogen ions). And a Bronsted-Lowry base is a proton acceptor (usually hydrogen ions). Consider the possibility of a chemistry of the reaction between HCl and NaOH. We have the reaction HCl + NaOH à NaCl + H2O. The hydroxide ions in the NaOH are bases because they accept hydrogen ions from acids to form water. And an acid that produces hydrogen ions in solution, giving a proton of the water molecule. Therefore, the answer is d. a Bronsted-Lowry of the base.
