Q 2607278188.     Compound X (molecular formula, `C_5H_8O`) does not react appreciably with Lucas reagent at room temperature but gives a precipitate with ammoniacal silver nitrate with excess of MeMgBr, 0.42 g of X gives 224 mL of `CH_4` at STP. Treatment of X with `H_2` in presence of Pt catalyst followed by boiling with excess HI, gives n-pentane. Suggest structure for X and write the equation involved.
