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.

Thanks!

The silver precipitate is silver hydroxide.
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.
