does metal oxide+non metal oxide give salt +water

Expert Answer:

It follows that a non-metal oxide acting as an acid, reacting with a metal oxide acting as a base will also give salt and water:

Non-metal oxide + Metal oxide → Salt + Water

For example,

The aqueous non-metal oxide like sulphurous acid and metal oxide like magnesium oxide reacts to produce magnesium sulphite salt and water.

The reaction is,

H2SO3 + MgO → MgSO3 + H2O
