Expert Answer:

Dear Student
Hydrolysis literally means reaction with water. It is a chemical process in which a molecule is cleaved into two parts by the addition of a molecule of water. One fragment of the parent molecule gains a hydrogen ion (H ) from the additional water molecule. The other group collects the remaining hydroxyl group (OH − ).

We hope that clarifies your query.
