Q 1189180917.     Na_2O_2(s) + H_2O(l) → (A) + (B)

On being placed in water, sodium peroxide not only produces an alkaline solution but also some bubbles. If we assume that the peroxide ion picks up two protons from water to produce a compound that can be seen as the dibasic conjugate acid of peroxide ion and then this compound undergoes a redox disproportion. (A) and (B) are
A

H_2O and O_2

B

Na_2O and NaOH

C

H_2O_2 and NaOH

D

NaOH and O_2
