A mixture of three alkenes (A, B, and C) was obtained by dehydration of 1,2-dimethyl cyclohexanol. The composition of the mixture was A (3%), B (31%), and C (66%). Catalytic hydrogenation of A, B, or C gave 1,2-dimethylcyclohexane. The three alkenes can be equilibrated by heating with sulfuric acid to give a mixture containing A (0%), B (15%), and C (85%). Identify A, B, and C.
