When you oxidise a secondary alcohol, you get a ketone. So when you reduce a ketone, you get a secondary alcohol. B and D are both ketones/aldehydes.

Reducing propanone forms propan-2-ol.

Functional group isomers have the same molecular formula, but different functional groups.

B and D have different molecular formulae to propan-2-ol. A has the same functional group.
