For question J.5, it asks to write the overall, complete ionic, and net ionic equation. For part c) OH-(aq) + H+(aq) --> 2H2O(l), I don't understand why there is a 2H20 instead of just H2O in the net ionic equation OH- + H+ --> 2H2O. Could someone explain this?

H+ is more accurately written as H3O+ which would react with OH- to form 2H2O

Where did you see the 2H2O? I only saw H2O in the answer
