Solution :-

According to the given information, propanal and pentan-3-one are the ozonolysis products of an alkene. Consider the given alkene as ‘A’. Now, writing the reverse of the ozonolysis reaction, we get;

The products are obtained on the cleavage of ozonide ‘X’. Thus, ‘X’ contains both products in cyclic form. The possible structure of ozonide can be represented as follows;

We know that, ‘X’ is an addition product of alkene ‘A’ with ozone. Thus, the possible structure of alkene ‘A’ is:
