HINT: Think about what actual reacts with the calcium carbonate (think ions)
BIG HINT: One is a weak acid and the other is a strong acid.

Consider how carbonate reacts with each respective acid in the aqueous solutions, the equilibrium pH of each respective acid solution, Ksp equation, common ion effect.
