Alkene Reactions

Two isomeric alkene starting materials are available for your use. They are:

A. 2-methyl-2-butene   (CH3)2C=CHCH3

B. 3-methyl-1-butene   (CH3)2CHCH=CH2

Using one or the other of these compounds, and selecting reagents from the list on the right, indicate how the following products might be prepared.
Each question (a. through h.) requires two responses. Under Starting Material enter A or B. Under Reagents enter a number corresponding to your selection.
Ignore the possibility of molecular rearrangement.
