An alkane "A" on reaction with O3 and Zn-H2O gives propane and ethanal in equimolar ratio. Addition of HCl to Alkane "A" gives "B" as the major product. The structure of the product "B" is

  • Option 1)

  • Option 2)

  • Option 3)

  • Option 4)

Answers (1)

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.
