How does a retrosynthetic analysis propose a way to synthesize an organic compound?

a.The analysis begins with an easy to obtain starting material and then adding on individual atoms to make the desired product.
b.The analysis begins with the product and successively breaks bonds that can be formed through known chemical reactions in order to break the desired product into smaller pieces.
c.The analysis begins with easy to obtain starting materials and then adding on individual atoms in order to connect them to make the desired product.
d.The analysis begins with easy to obtain starting materials and then proposing how to combine them to make the desired product.
e.The analysis begins with the product and randomly breaks bonds in order to break the desired product into smaller pieces.
