1. you intend to perform the double aldol condensation reaction in this week's experiment using ketone x and aldehyde y. you mix 0.3 moles of ketone x with 0.4 moles of aldehyde x . what is your theoretical yield in moles? round to the nearest tenth
2. the condensation portion of the aldol condensation reaction proceeds via an e1 mechanism

the fewer the carbon atoms, the closer it is to being a gas. the only one you have to check out is a which is hexane. you know that gasoline at the pumps has 8 carbons and its a liquid. so b and c are both not gases because they are above 8.
c6 (hexane) is a liquid at room temperature not a gas.
the answer is d. if there is a gas present, it must be c3
