An alkene (A with molecular formula C7H14) on ozonolysis yields an aldehyde. The aldehyde is easily oxidized to an acid (B). When B is treated with Bromine in presence of Phosphorous it yields a compound (C) which on hydrolysis gives a hydroxy acid (D). This acid can also be obtained from acetone by the reaction with hydrogen cyanide followed by hydrolysis. Identify A, B, C and D and write the chemical equations for the reaction involved.
