Step 1

Hey, since there are multiple sub parts posted, we will answer first three questions. If you want any specific question to be answered then please submit that question only or specify that subpart question number in your message.

Step 2

Using the double bond equivalence formula, the number of unsaturation is determined for given species.

Double bond equivalence, DBE = C+1-(H/2)-(X/2)+(N/2).


The number of degrees of unsaturation is as follows,
