Because the conjugate pairs of strong acids and bases are pH-neutral, they don't have a significant acidity/basicity. $KNO_3$: $K^+$: Insignificant acid (Conjugate acid of $KOH$) $N{O_3}^-$: Insignificant base (Conjugate base of $HN{O_3}$)

Work Step by Step

- The stronger the acid/base, the weaker its conjugate pair; therefore, conjugate pairs of strong acids/bases will have insignificant basicity/acidity.
