How will you prepare the following compounds from benzene? You may use any inorganic reagent and any organic reagent having not more than one carbon atom
after friedel craft acylation of benzene it will form toluene, after nitration it forms p-nitro toluene as major product, after oxidation of this compound with KMnO4 in acidic conditions it forms p-Nitrobenzoic acid.

Compound ‘A’ was prepared by oxidation of compound ‘B’ with alkaline KMnO4. Compound ‘A’ on reduction with lithium aluminium hydride gets converted back to compound ‘B’. When compound ‘A’ is heated with compound B in the presence of H2SO4 it produces fruity smell of compound C to which family the compounds ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ belong to?Chemistry - Exemplar
