How do you know which combination of solutions produces the greatest change in temperature?

Since 50 mL of 2M HCl and 50 mL of 2M NaOH is the most concentrated solution and makes the least amount of water as a product, it would be the right answer. We would need to make sure that the least amount of water is produced, since water has a very high specific heat capacity, which would hinder a large temperature change, as compared to if we had the least amount of water produced.
