  1. Since 3-pentanol is a symmetrical secondary alcohol, treatment with H2SO4 gives the alkene and there is only one possible. That will be 2-pentene and that is M. Then Br2/H2O produces a bromohydrin reaction in which Br adds to one side of the double bond and OH adds to the other. Look up bromohydrin reactions to obtain that product which is N.
