A)
Potassium carbonate is the primary component of potash and the more refined pearl ash or salts of tartar.
Potassium carbonate $(K_2CO_3)$ is a white salt, soluble in water (insoluble in ethanol) which forms a strongly alkaline solution.
It can be made as the product of potassium hydroxide's absorbent reaction with carbon dioxide.
