Is water both amphoteric and amphiprotic?

Yes, water is both amphoteric and amphiprotic as it can react with both acids and bases, making it amphoteric, AND it can either accept or donate an H+ ion making it amphiprotic.

Yes, because it can donate an H+ (making OH-) or accept an H+ (making H3O+).

H20 can be both since it can accept/give protons and it can also be amphoteric.

Yes water is both amphoteric and amphiprotic because it reacts with both acids and bases, as well as donates and accepts protons.

yes,water can act as both an acid or a base depending on what is interacting with in a reaction.
