Solution

The correct option is B Carboxylic acids
Hydrolysis of cyanohydrin derivative produces carboxylic acids. $$ \displaystyle -C \equiv N$$ group is hydrolysed to $$ \displaystyle - \underset {  \displaystyle   { \underset {  \displaystyle  \text { O } }{ || } } }{C }-OH $$ group.
 Cyanohydrin derivatives are obtained by addition of a molecule of HCN to $$ \displaystyle C=O$$ double bond of aldehdyes or ketones.
