This is a synthesis question. You need to show how the starting material can be converted into the product(s) shown. You may use any reactions you have learned. Show all the reagents you need. Show each molecule synthesized along the way and be sure to pay attention to the regiochemistry and stereochemistry preferences for each reaction. If you make a racemic mixture, you can either draw both enantiomers or simply draw one structure and label all chiral centers with an asterisk (*). Either way, you must write racemic if appropriate.
All of the carbon atoms of the products must come from the starting materials.
