Tert-Butane Reaction Scheme

Chemistry Level 3

In the reaction scheme of \(\text{t-butane}\) shown above, \(\text{t-butane}\) is first reacted with \(\text{Br}_2\) in light, followed by a treatment with \(\text{t-butoxide}\). The major product is then mixed with \(\text{osmium tetroxide}\); assume this is followed by addition of a reducing agent (\(\text{NaHSO}_3\)). Lastly, \(\text{sodium periodate}\) is mixed in.

Give your answer as the total number of \(\text{hydrogens}\), \(\text{oxygens}\), and \(\text{carbons}\) in the final major product(s) of this reaction scheme.
