amphoreric oxides are oxides which acts both as an acid or a base under different conditions.i.e they have both acidic and basic they can turn red litmus paper blue and blue litmus paper is exhibited by some transition metals,and other metals like tin,gold,silver,aluminium,lead etc.when they react with oxygen.therefore,C is d ansa.

Zinc oxide is represented with the formula (zno).it has the ability to bahave as an acid and as well as a base therefore it is an amphoreric oxide.another example of amphoteric oxide is aluminium oxide.

yah its 2ru cos it exist b/t d acidic nd basic ppt,it also a transition metal.

Yea it's amphoteric oxide coz it has a dual xtics of basic and acdic oxides

Zinc oxide (ZnO) as a transparent conducting oxide (TCO) is an n-type II–VI 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.

sir,it only acts as either an acid or base under separate does not react with acids nor base.

Zinc oxide is an inorganic compound with the formula ZnO. ZnO is a white powder that is insoluble in water, and it is widely used as an additive in numerous materials and products including rubbers, plastics, ceramics, glass, cement, lubricants, paints, ointments, adhesives, sealants, pigments, foods, batteries.

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.

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

ye all re right

it is an amphoteric oxide bcos it can acts both as a basic oxide and an acidic oxide

This is because zinc oxide possess the abilities of both basic and acidic oxides
