Basic solution?

  1. Jun 17, 2009 #1
    How do you know when something forms a basic solution when dissolved in water if it doesn't have an OH?
    This is the question I'm looking at:

    Which of the following salts forms a basic solution when dissolved in water?

    (A) NaCl
    (B) (NH4)2SO4
    (C) CuSO4
    (D) K2CO3
    (E) NH4NO3

    Thanks ahead of time.
