A. Draw compounds C, D, and F in the boxes.

B. Circle the correct answer(s) clearly and carefully:

Step 1 is:       Bronsted‐Lowry reaction     or     Lewis acid‐base reaction
Step 2 is:       Bronsted‐Lowry reaction     or     Lewis acid‐base reaction
Nucleophile:  A     B     C     D     E     F
Electrophile:  A     B     C     D     E     F
Lewis acid:    A     B     C     D     E     F
Lewis base:   A     B     C     D     E     F
