As we learnt in 

Ozonolysis -

Ozonolysis of alkenes involved the addition of ozone molecules to alkene to form ozonide and then cleavage of the ozonide by Zn - H2O to smalter molecules.This reaction is highly useful in detecting the position of the double bond in alkene or other unsaturated compounds.

- wherein

 

 Molecular mass of CH3CHO = 44

                         (an aldehyde)

This option is incorrect.

Option 2)

propene

This option is incorrect.

Option 3)
