According to question : 

A+Na_{2}O_{2}\rightarrow y\left ( Resultant\: \: solution \right )

Y+HNO_{3}\overset{\left ( NH_{4} \right )_{2}M_{o}0_{4}}{\rightarrow}yellow\: \: ppt.

\left ( NH_{4} \right )_{2}MoO_{4} is used for detection of phosphorus. This yellow coloured precipitate helps us to conclude that Phosphorus is present in the organic compound.
