    It would entirely depend upon the alkali that it was reacting with.

    However the non H part of the acid will bond with the metal of the alkali, in general.

    A reaction might be \mathrm{HCL+XOH \longrightarrow XCL +H_2O} where X is a metal element.

    depends which alkali/base you are reacting the acids with. But the answer above as the correct endings so it would be metal sulphate, metal nitrate...... etc

    Yeah, agreeing with above, a salt is neutral, so you would need an alkali (base) added to the acid to produce a salt, therefore the salt is a compound with the acids suffix & the bases prefix
