Identifying Compounds Using Infrared, NMR and Mass Spectroscopy

I need to identify the 2 unknowns. I was given these graphs. For each unknown, I was given IR, NMR, Mass spec and CNMR. I need the following for each graph:

IR- Peaks, range, and functional group
NMR- what each singlet and doublet represent
Mass Spec- total mass, what each line represents
CNMR - what does CNMR graph tells us?

And of course, what each unknown is.
