🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Huckaba's class at XULA.

Solution: The reason HI is a stronger acid than HCl is because      A) the difference in electronegativity gets larger as the atoms get farther apart on the periodic table. B) electronegativity increases as you go up the periodic table. C) the bond strength decreases down a group in the periodic table. D) anion radius decreases as you go down the periodic table. E) HI is an Arrehnius acid and HCl is not.
