I don't know what the mild oxidation does. Does it split the double bond into a ketone and aldehyde?

"Mild oxidation?" Adding Br? Or, not? Epoxide?

What if it was just mild oxidation? What would be the reaction name??

That's what I'm asking you. Is it a "mild oxidation" in the presence of bromine, or is it in the presence of something else?

It actually turns out to be just mild oxidation. I guess two -OH groups would add across the double bond? Is there a mechanism for this reaction?
