False, sulfuric acid is diprotic

Work Step by Step

Sulfuric Acid is H2SO4. When placed in water this will dissociate into: H2SO4 --> H(SO4)- + H+ This will then dissociate further into HSO4- --> (SO4)2- + H+ This shows that you can get 2 protons from H2SO4, therefore making sulfuric acid diprotic, not monoprotic.
