Sulfuric/nitric acid: Acid rain is a general term used to describe a condition where sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides gases given off from fossil fuel combustion (i.E power plants) combines in the atmosphere with oxygen and water forming a weak sulfuric acid and nitric acid in the rain water.

Depends!: Acid rain is general term. The cause varies. See this article by the EPA: https://www.epa.gov/acidrain/what-acid-rain
