# Butyne Transformation

Chemistry Level 2

Butyne is mixed in with a solution of $$\ce{H_2SO_4}$$, $$\ce{HgSO_4}$$, and $$\ce{H2 O}$$. This is quickly followed by an addition of $$\ce{Cl_2}$$ and $$\ce{OH^-}$$, with a post acid workup. Lastly, diazomethane is added.  Determine which choice; $$A$$, $$B$$, $$C$$, or $$D$$, is the major product of the above series of reactions.
