The aqueous solution of one of the following salts will turn phenolphthalein indicator pink. This salt is:
K2CO3 is formed from a weak acid, carbonic acid (H2CO3), and a strong base, potassium hydroxide (KOH). On hydrolysis, K2CO3 forms more OH- ions than H+ ions, and thus, it is basic. As the aqueous solution of the salt is basic, it turns a phenolphthalein indicator pink.
