An Aromatic Compound "A" of molecular formula $$(\text{C}_7\text{H}_7\text{Cl} )$$ reacts with $$\text{HNO}_3$$ to yield an Aromatic Compound "B" of molecular formula $$(\text{C}_7\text{H}_6\text{O} )$$. Compound B is reduced by strong reducing agents to yield Compound "C" of molecular formula $$( \text{C}_7\text{H}_8\text{O} )$$ which is used as general solvent for ink, paints and lacquers. What is compound C?
