Solution 1

yes, basic solution also has H+ ions. However, their concentration is less as compared to the concentration of OH ions that makes the solution basic.

Solution 2

Yes, basic solutions also have H+ (aq) ions.
Generally, bases generate hydroxide ions when they are dissolved in water. Basic solutions also have H+ (aq) ions, which are obtained from the ionisation of water. The amount of H+ ions in basic solutions is very less compared with the amount of OH- ions. Hence, they are basic in nature.
