it surely basic because all oxides of strong metals{ ie metals oxidation +1to 2}are all basic. it can only be amphoteric because of the privilege as transition group member.

Amphoteric oxides are oxides of metals which behave both as basic oxides and acidic oxides (the cab react with both acid anf alkalis to form salts and water only, e.g aluminium, zinc, lead and tin, so Amphoteric oxide is the correct answer
