Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

D. reacts with water 


6)I and II 


HNO3 & HCl


HF + H2O <=====> F- + H3O+ 

Conjugate acid is on the products side (H3O+) and HF is on the reactants side so it is just an "acid" 

Conjugate doesn't compare strength it only tells you that it is on the products side of a chemical equation. 

F- is the conjugate base. 

H2O is the "base".


hydroiodic acid 


hydrochloric acid


potassium hydroxide
