please refer explanation


metal hydrogen carbonates are generally basic is nature because if we think of metal hydrogen carbonates preparation we find metal hydroxide reacting with carbonic acid to form metal hydrogen carbonate and water .

generally metal hydroxides are strong bases while carbonic acid is weak acid , the neutralization reaction gives out basic salt and water .
refer to the information given below;

  • strong acid + strong base#-># neutral salt + water
  • strong acid+ weak base #-># acidic salt + water
  • weak acid + strong base#-># basic salt + water
  • weak acid + weak base #-># neutral salt + water

so we get metal hydrogen carbonate as basic salt ,

hope it helps!!!!
