does nonmetal react with with acid?

Yes non metals can react with the acids.
Reaction with non-metallic elements, with the exception of silicon and halogens, usually oxidizes them to their highest oxidation states as acids with the formation of nitrogen dioxide for concentrated acid and nitric oxide for dilute acid.

- 3C + 4HNO3 → 3CO2 + 4NO + 2H2O
