Identify the comp

Answer :

Compound B produces an optically active compound after hydrogenation.

Explanation:


Any compound is said to be optically inactive when:


1. It can show enantiomerism-It forms non-super imposable mirror images of each other.


2. It has a chiral carbon-A chiral carbon is one which is bonded to four different molecules.
Hydrogenation of A:



The product formed by the hydrogenation of compound A does not have a chiral carbon. Therefore, it is not optically active.

Hydrogenation of B:



The product formed by the hydrogenation of compound B has a chiral carbon. Therefore, it is optically active.
