Solution

The correct option is A Acetaldehyde
Iodoform test is given by compounds containing methyl ketone and alcohols containing atleast one methyl group in alpha poisition.
Similarly in Fehling's test aldehydes and alpha-hydroxy ketones shows positive result.
 So, only acetaldehyde (CH3CHO) both give iodoform and fehling's test.
