Answer:

There are two distinct differences between a Lewis acid and base reaction.

Explanation:

A lewis acid is a substance that accepts a pair of electrons to form a covalent bond.

A base acid is when a substance donates a pair of electrons to form a covalent bond.

Therefore, a lewis acid-base reaction is represented by a pair of electrons from a base to an acid.
