A polyprotic acid is one which can break off a hydrogen ion more than once so if an acid contains more than one hydrogen atoms then it is polyprotic such as H2SO4 or H3PO4

A polyprotic acid is an acid that can donate more than one proton while a polyprotic base can accept more than one proton.

No water is not a polyprotic acid.
