An organic compound ‘A’ with molecular formula C8H8O gives positive DNP and iodoform tests. It does not reduce Tollen’s or fehling’s reagent and does not decolourise bromine water also. On oxidation with chromic acid (H2CrO4), it gives a carboxylic acid (B) with molecular formula C7H6O2. Deduce the structures of A and B.
