    A, B, C can be answered if you read through textbooks/notes on oxidation of alcohol

    D and E are standard condensation reactions in organic chemistry, i.e. water is produced as a by-product.
    Acid + alcohol (with a little bit of strong acid as catalyst)---> ester (sure you have heard of this) + water

    amine can act as base (propylamine certainly can), organic acid is acidic => how do you think they'd react.
