B) $$C_{6}H_{5}CHO$$

C) $$Cl_{3}C-CHO$$

D) $$(CH_{3})_{3}C-CHO$$

Solution

The correct option is D $$A,\: B,$$ and $$D$$

Carbonyl compounds having no $$\alpha-$$hydrogen will undergo Cannizzaro reaction. 

Out of the above-given options, A, B and D none of them have alpha hydrogen. So, all can undergo Cannizzaro reaction.

Option C compound is known as chloral because in presence of base chloral gives chloroform, which is not Cannizzaro product.
$$CCl_3CHO +OH^- \rightarrow CHCl_3 $$
