Q 1270367216.     10 ml of a gaseous organic compound containing `C`, `H` and `O` only was mixed with 100 ml of oxygen and exploded under conditions which allowed the water formed to condense . The volume of the gas after explosion was `90` ml.

On treatment with potash solution, a further contraction in volume of `20` ml was observed. Given that the vapour density of the compound is 23, deduce the molecular formula.

All volume measurements were carried out under the same conditions.
