Problem: An alkene having the molecular formula C10H18 is treated sequentially with ozone (O3) and zinc/acetic acid to give the product/s shown. Draw a structural formula for the alkene. You do not have to consider stereochemistry. You do not have to explicitly draw H atoms. In cases where there is more than one answer, just draw one.
