Q 2687834787.     An alkene (A) C16H16 on ozonolysis gives only one product (B) CxHRO. Compound (B) on reaction with `NaOH//I_2` yields sodium benzoate. Compound (B) reacts with `KOH//NH_2NH_2` yielding a hydrocarbon (C) `C_8H_10`. Write t e structures of compounds (B) and (C). Based on this it formation two isomeric structures can be proposed for alkene (A). Write their structures and identify the isomer which on catalytic hydrogenation `(H_2//Pd - C)` gives a racemic mixture.
