27. An organic compound (A) having molecular formula C9H10O forms an orange red precipitate (B) with 2, 4 - DNP reagent.
Compound (A) gives a yellow precipitate (C) when heated in the
presence of iodine and NaOH along with a colourless

Tollen’s reagent or Fehling’s solution nor does it decolorise bromine water. On
oxidation of (A) with chromic acid, a
corboxylic acid (E) of molecular formula C7H6O2
is formed. Deduce the structures
of the organic compounds (A) to (E).
