Q 2687678587.     An alkene A on ozonolysis yields acetone and an aldehyde. The aldehyde is easily oxidised to an acid B. When B is treated with bromine in presence of phosphorus yields a compound C which on hydrolysis gives a hydroxyl acid D. This acid can also be obtained from acetone by the reaction with hydrogen cyanide followed by hydrolysis. Identify the compounds A,B, C and D.
