Which of the following salts will give an aqueous solution having pH of almost 7?
KCl is formed from a strong acid, hydrochloric acid (HCl), and a strong base, potassium hydroxide (KOH). Thus, KCl, on hydrolysis, forms equal amounts of H+ and OH- ions. This is why an aqueous solution of KCl shows a pH of almost 7.
