B
CH3OH|CHCH2CH2CH3

C
CH3O||COH|CHCH2CH3

D
CH3O||CCH2CH2OH|CHCH3

Solution

The correct option is A $$CH_3-\overset{O}{\overset{||}{C}}-CH_2-\overset{OH}{\overset{|}{C}}H-CH_3$$
Greater the conjugation. greater the stability and hence, easier the dehydration. Thus, compound (a), in acidic conditions, will most readily be dehydrated.
