if my reactant is 5-hydroxy-3-methylpentanal (which is an aldehyde) and i dilute the rxn with aqueous acid, what product will i get? write out the product in condensed form and name its functional group.

P.S: 5-hydroxy-3-methylpentanal is CH2(OH)CH2CH(CH3)CH2CH=O <--where double bond O is attached to the last carbon. the parentheses means that it is attached to the carbon to the left of it.
