IN MY OIPINION ANSWER IS  C) ONLY CARBOXYL ACIDS
GRIGNARD REAGENT  react with dry ice (solid CO2)  followed by aqueous acid work-up to give carboxylic acids.
CO2 can be thought of as a being a dicarbonyl compound :  O=C=O
Note that the carboxylic acid contains one extra C atom compared to the original halide from which the Grignard reagent was prepared.
RMgX and RLi show same type of reeaction with dry ice
 
APPROVE IF USEFUL
