Sulphuric acid is a diprotic acid that dissociates completely when dissolved in water. How does a monoprotic acid like trifluoromethanesulfonic acid produce a greater pH change than H2SO4?

Sulfuric acid is a diprotic acid that DOESN'T dissociate completely in water. 0.01M solution is about 50/50 SO42- and HSO4-.

How does a monoprotic acid like trifluoromethanesulfonic acid produce a greater pH change than H2SO4?

Does it?
