what is the reaction equation when maleic anhydride is combines with granular zinc and HCl

propose structures for the products you would obtain by treating fumaric acid, cinnamic acid, and butynedioic acid with zinc and HCl. write balanced equations for the reactions.

Probably you simply add H across the double bond. But I believe that will take a catalyst.
