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

Zinc oxide is ZnO and it is amphoteric because it has both acidic and basic properties (Amphoteric oxides are oxides that has both acidic and basic properties). Oxides of transition metals result to Amphoteric oxides.

This is because zinc will react with both bases and acids to give salts and water only as the product

The answer is C because an amphoteric oxide is an oxide which reacts with acids and bases to form salt and water only e.g.

ZnO+HCl ----> ZnCl+H2O (for acid)

ZnO+NaOH ----> Na2Zn+H2O

Zinc oxide (ZnO) as a transparent conducting oxide (TCO) is an n-type II鈥揤I semiconductor and has a wide direct band gap of about 3.37 eV [1] at room temperature. There is considerable interest in ZnO because of its high optical transparency, good conductivity for doped ZnO and low production costs.
