    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    I get that the Br will attach to the triple bond creating a double bond and a Br at the end. I get the gringard reagent but what will the acetone do?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I believe I got it it is 2 pentane-4-ol. If anyone would like to confirm that it would be great.
