Water is not a polyprotic acid because you would start considering it from H2O and not OH-
But in this case it would have 2 h+ ions to remove. Are we just to assume the oxygen can't loose both hydrogens in water?

an acid is polyprotic if it has multiple hydrogens. For example, H2SO4 can give off an initial H+ and end up as HSO4-. It can also give off a second H+ and end up as a SO42- ion
