QUICK ANSWER…

A

SOLUTION 

Neutral oxides are neither acidic nor basic, nor amphoteric.

Neutral oxide reacts with neither acid nor base to form salts.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is correct. Dinitrogen (I) Oxide, water, as well as Carbon (II) Oxide, are all neutral oxides.
  2. Option B is incorrect. Sulphur (IV) Oxide is an acidic oxide, it dissolves in water to form acid, it can also react directly with a base to form a salt.
  3. C is incorrect. Sodium Oxide is a basic oxide, while Zinc Oxide is an amphoteric oxide.
  4. D is not the correct answer. Although NO is a neutral oxide, SO3 is an acidic oxide.

KEY-POINTS…

You may please note these/this:

  • Acidic oxides dissolve in water to form acids, they react with bases to form salt.
  • Basic oxides dissolve in water to form bases, they react with acids to form salt.
  • Amphoteric oxides are both basic and acidic, they can behave like both.
  • Neutral oxides are neither acidic nor basic, neither are they amphoteric.
