What are some examples of some polyprotic bases? How can they gain protons? What are the chemical reactions that show it?

Some examples would be Ba(OH)2, PO4^3-, SO4^2-

In the case of H2SO4, these are the reactions that show this:

H2SO4 + H2O -> HSO4- + H3O+

HSO4- + H2O -> SO42- + H3O+

overall equation: H2SO4 + 2H2O -> SO42- + 2H30+
