An organic compound A on heating with concentrated H2SO4 forms a compound B which on addition of one mole of hydrogen in presence of Ni forms a compound C. One mole of compound C on combustion forms two moles of CO2 and 3 moles of H2O. Identify the compounds A, B and C and write the chemical equations of the reactions involved.

Compound A is Ethanol (CH3CH2OH)
$CH_3CH_2OH (in \ the \ presence \ of \ conc. H_2SO_4) → CH_2-CH_2+ H_2O$
Compound B is Ethene (CH2= CH2)
$CH_2=CH_2 (in \ the \ presence \ of \ Ni)  →C_2H_6$
Compound C is CH3—CH3
$2C_2H_6+7O_2 \rightarrow 4CO_2 + 6H_2O$
