Answer:

Alkaline (basic)

Explanation:

Acid solutions range from pH #<=7#.

Neutral solutions are a pH of #7#.

Alkaline solutions range from pH #>=7#

Note:

pH can also be 0, negative, and go above 14 if the hydrogen ion concentration satisfies the pH equation (pH = #-log[H^+]#) .

Answer:

#color (green)("Basic")#

Explanation:

Remember this
solution with
#pH >7# is #color (indigo)("basic")#
#pH <7# is #color (indigo)("acidic")#
#pH=7# is #color (indigo)("neutral")#
All at temperature slightly less than #color(red)(25°C)#

So, the given solution with #pH=8# is basic according to the information mentioned above.

Know why i mentioned temperature also ?
consider a glass of water its #pH=7#, when you heat it , ph begins to lower down , this doesn't mean that water becomes acidic but it means that k equilibrium has shifted , in simple words the number of both cations and anions rose .
