This oxidation of alkene occurs at the double bond. Thus, propane & ethanol must combine to give the alkene

            (Propanone)                        

                                                    \Bigg\downarrow

                        

Now this reacts with HCl to form B as follows:

                                                                         \Bigg\downarrow

                                                              

Option 3 is correct.
