Primary alcohols and aldehydes get oxidised to carboxylic acids and secondary alcohols get oxidised to ketones under those conditions.

No that would give you a product with 4 oxygens i.e. two COOH groups.

I thought the answer would be the one which is a primary alcohol?

I’m so confused now

Each of the four options already have two oxygens (what you want) so you want to pick the option that gets oxidised the least.

That's got an aldehyde (CHO) which oxidises to a carboxylic acid (COOH)

Because it’s a ketone so gets oxidised least?
