Problem

How can you determine whether an anion will act as a weak base?

Solution

We're being asked on how we are going to determine whether an anion will act as a weak base.

Weak bases are weak electrolytes that don't completely ionize but instead reach a state of equilibrium. Conjugate acids of weak bases are weak acids and the conjugate bases of weak acids are weak bases.
