Problem

Alcohol A (C10H18O) is converted to a mixture of alkenes B and C on being heated with potassium hydrogen sulfate (KHSO4). Catalytic hydrogenation of B and C yields the same product. Assuming that dehydration of alcohol A proceeds without rearrangement, deduce the structures of alcohol A and alkene C.
