Answer:

#"Option D"#

Explanation:

This question illustrates stoichiometry, which requires that all chemical equations be balanced with respect to (i) mass, and (ii) charge.

We have the neutralization of #Ca(OH)_2(aq)#, i.e. #"lime-water"#:

#Ca(OH)_2(aq)+2HNO_3(aq) rarr Ca(NO_3)_2(aq) + 2H_2O(l)#

And the products are #"D"# as above. Can you write a stoichiometric equation that represents the reaction between #Ca(OH)_2#, and the diacid, #H_2SO_4#?
