in a test paper i had a question that asked me to determine the nature of the oxide, A2O.
Element A gas 1 valence electron, is a colorless gas at rtp, a poor conductor of electricity and does not react with cikd water.
naturally i assumed it was hydrogen, but then came the question about the oxide; is it amphoteric or neutral?
i put it as amphoteric, but the answer was neutral. is there any logic to it?
im studying the 'o' lvl syllabus btw
