Acetone is a basis because oxygen in the carbonyl group provides a pair of electrons when a nucleophile is present, and it is the ability of the hydrogen atom to accept the nucleophile. When such a reaction occurs, Alcl is formed.
Acetone is a nonionic polar compound, but it is soluble in water because oxygen in the CN can participate in hydrogen bonds.
