The two compounds would give off different peaks based on the functional groups they have.

Figure 2 is the alcohol based compound, shown by two singlets. One singlet (approx. 6ppm) is the alcohol as it is down shielded due to O. Singlet approx. 2.4ppm is the hydrogen on the same carbon as the alcohol.

Figure 1 is the ketone based compound. Only aromatic peaks in 7 - 8 ppm.
