1. A student proposed the series of reactions shown below as a means of converting butaneto the thioether "A" shown at the end of the scheme. NONE of these reactions is correct -NONE will give the product specified. For each of the reactions shown below, i) indicate what type of reaction is represented by the transformation shown (for example, the process presented might be characterized as an "E1 elimination", even if it couldn'tpossibley occur as shown) [1 point each], and ii) for each incorrect process shown, designate why the reaction couldn't occur as shown(for example, "it couldn't undergo an elimination because there is no beta hydrogen" or"it could undergo an elimination, but the major product would be [some structure], notthe product shown).
