In the reaction co32- H2O -- hco3- oh- the carbonate ion is acting as an a arrhenius base b arrhenius acid c bronsted-lowry base d bronsted-lowry acid?

The Bronsted-Lowry definition describes acids as being proton (H+) donators and bases as being proton acceptors. So the answer would be C, because the carbonate anion is accepting a proton (H+ cation) to become the HCO3-

How does the Bronsted-Lowry definition of an acid differ from the Arrhenius definition of an acid?

Because some acids contribute H+ directly to the base so the H+ will not be found in the solution.
