Correct option is A)
FeCl 3 ​ Fe 3+ +H 2 ​ O→Fe(OH) 3 ​ +H + ∴ Generation of H + ion Thus FeCl 3 ​ is acidic Here Ferric ion has high +ve charge density. Hence, it gets hydrolysed readily and protons are set free which makes the aqueous solution of FeCl 3 ​ acidic. or FeCl3 is an salt of weak base and storng acid so it will under go cationic hydrolysis and the solution will be acidic..
