Answer:

Isn't that a neutralization reaction?

Explanation:

Well, a neutralization reaction is written in the word form as follows:

#"acid + base" \ -> \ "salt + water"#

So here, the acid would be piece #"A"#, the base would be piece #"B"#, the salt will be piece #"C"#, and the water is #H_2O#, which is its chemical formula.

An example of a common acid-base reaction in the lab is:

#HCl(aq)+NaOH(aq)->NaCl(aq)+H_2O(l)#

This is when hydrochloric acid #(HCl)# (the acid), reacts with sodium hydroxide #(NaOH)# (the base), to form a salt, sodium chloride #(NaCl)#, and water, which is #(H_2O)#.
