B) it does not completely dissociate into H+ and HCO3- ions in water.


Weak acids and bases are weak electrolytes which don't completely dissociate like H2CO3 and most of it remains in its molecular form. An effective way to determine a weak electrolyte is by looking at the the Ka. If the Ka is less than 1 the acid or base is a weak electrolyte.
