Which of these will not react with acetylene?

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;NaOH&(b)\;\text{Ammoniacal }AgNO_3\\(c)\;Na&(d)\;HCl\end{array}$

1 Answer

Being a very weak acid $(Ka\approx 10^{-25}$),acetylene does not react with NaOH or KOH.But it reacts with very strong base.(E.g.$NaNH_2$)
Hence (a) NaOH is the correct option.
