Solution 1

The presence of hydrogen (H+) or hydronium (H3O+) ions in the aqueous solution of an acid are responsible for conducting electricity.

Solution 2

Due to charged particles, there is electricity that is conducted in aqueous solutions. The charged particles are called ions and they help conduct electricity.

Solution 3

Acids dissociate to release H+ ions and an anion, when dissolved in water. When electric current is passed through an aqueous solution, the ions start moving toward oppositely charged terminals of the battery, henceforth, conducting electricity.
