Solution :-

This water is free from all the soluble mineral salts and it doesn’t contain any cation or anion. It is obtained successively by passing the water through anion exchange and cation exchange resin.

During the cation exchange process, H+ exchanges for and other cations present in the water.

→ Ca2+

→ Na+

→ Mg2+
