D
Propanal and acetone

Solution

The correct option is D Propanal and acetone
Isomers are the compounds having the same molecular formula but different structures.
a) Ethanol - $$C_{2}H_{5}OH = 46$$
    Ethoxy ethane - $$C_{2}H_{5}OC_{2}H_{5} = 74$$
b) Methanol - $$CH_{3}OH = 32$$
    Methoxy methane - $$CH_{3}OCH_{3} = 46$$
c) Propionic acid - $$CH_{3}CH_{2}COOH = 74$$
    Ethyl acetate - $$CH_{3}-COOC_2H_{5} = 88$$
d) Propanal - $$CH_3CH_2CHO = 58$$
    Acetone - $$CH_3COCH_3 = 58$$
Therefore, propanal and acetone are isomers.
