1. When adding the sodium borohydride solution to the vanillin solution, why are you told to do so in a dropwise fashion?

-So you don't accidentally spill any sodium borohydride

-To prevent formation of unwanted vanillin byproducts

-to prevent formation of unwanted sodium borohydride byproducts

-Sodium borohydride is explosive

-Both A and D above are correct

(I'm leaning towards option C but I also thought it might be D)

    I don' know what the question is. What does "Both A and D above are correct" mean.
