Question 1.png

Hi, I have attached an image of my two

questions. For the first one I believe there are 4 transitions before getting to the product but I'm not sure how to solve them or what to add in order to get to the products. For the second question I'm very confused about what I should be doing to solve the question, I don't understand how you know what to add or how to answer it without including a mechanism.
