    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    The silver precipitate is silver hydroxide. The acid is a diprotic acid. However, I don't really know how does the bonding effect it's ability to donate H+. Also what are the arrows in molecules 2, 3, 4? Can someone explain this to me.

    No, it is metallic silver, so the silver was reduced.

    Please check what your book says about phosphoric acids, it definitely must mention what kinds of bonds are present.
