what do you understand by PH value? two solutions X and Y have pH values of 4 and 10 respectively which one of these two will give a pink colour with phenolphthalein indicator

pH?stands for power of hydrogen, which?is ?a measurement of the hydrogen ion concentration in the body. The total?pH?scale ranges from 1 to 14, with 7 considered to be neutral. A?pH less than 7?is ?said to be acidic and solutions with a?pH?greater than 7 are basic or alkaline.
It is given that solution X have 4 pH value and Y have 10 value
We know that phenolphthalien turns pink in basic solutio so solution Y will turn pink because its pH value is 10 and it is basic in nature.

x has the pH value 4 so it is acidic
and y has the value 10 so it is basic..
therefore y give a pink colour with phenolphthalein. as phenolphthalein is a indicator which indicates whether the substance is acid or base . so when acid react with phenolphthalein then it give colourless colour but when it react with base it give pink colour...
