    hi during a science lab we tesed various unknown substances to classify them as either acid or base.

    Some of the indicators that were used was:
    bromthymol blue,
    blue/red litmus paper,
    phenophthalein .

    One of the substances was acid according to 2 indicators but it was base according to the other two. Is this substance acid or base?
