Step 2

A function group conversion is the reaction in which one functional group is converted into other functional group.

The carbon chain of an organic compound is known as the carbon skeleton and the reaction in which the carbon skeleton of a compound changes is the carbon skeleton modification reaction.

Step 3

In the given reaction, two steps are involved.

In first step, the alkene functional group is converted into an alcoholic functional group. Thus, 1st step is a functional group conversion.

In the second step, the alcohol group i...
