Expert Answer:

When acid is diluted with water, acids gives H+ ions. These H+ ions combine with water to form H3O+ (hydronium ion).
oxygen in the water molecule has the lone pair of electrons, oxygen donates its lone pair to H+ ions which has lack of electrons.
When some negatively charged species attracted hydrogen ion towards itself then only Hydrogen ion react with other species.
