Problem: This aromatic synthesis uses reaction of a diazonium salt as a key step. The transformation occurs in 4 steps and invokes the following reaction: nitration, reduction, diazoction, formation of phenol. Draw the structures of the products of reactions reduction and diazoction. Do not draw organic or inorganic by-products. Do not include counter ions, e.g. Na+ I, in your answer.
