Hi Student,
Carbonic acid is a diprotic acid. On Neautralisation it still consist of one H that can be displaced. This wont happen in mono protic acid like HCl

Carbonic acid is a dibasic acid and on nuetralisation is still left with a hydrogen ion while HCl being a monobasic acid is left with no hydrogen ions
