A
Cannizaro reaction

B
Wurtz reaction

C
Reimer-Tiemann reaction

D
Friedel-Crafts acylation

Solution

The correct option is A Cannizaro reaction
$$HCHO\xrightarrow{conc. NaOH} HCOO^-Na^++CH_3OH$$ (Cannizaro reaction)
$$R-Cl\xrightarrow[dry\ ether]{Na}R-R+NaCl$$ (Wurtz reaction)
Cannizaro reaction will not result in the formation of carbon-carbon bonds. Cannizaro reaction is disproportionation reaction in which one molecule of carbonyl compound is oxidized to sodium salt of carboxylic acid and other molecule is reduced to alcohol.
