Acetals are the condensation products from two alcohol units and either an aldehyde or a ketone. The acetal group has found extensive use as a protecting group in synthetic organic chemistry since it is easy to install and easy to remove. This question refers to the acetal depicted below and the constituent alcohol and carbonyl compound precursors.

Select the two compounds that would give rise to the acetal depicted above if combined in the presence of an acid catalyst. Select one from the top row (Choices 'A'-'C') and one from the bottom row (Choices 'D'-'F').
The precursor compound for the left side of the molecule is:
Select Option Structure $A$Structure $B$Structure $C$
. The precursor compound for the right side of the molecule is:
Select Option Structure $D$Structure $E$Structure $F$
.
