Cyclic Alkyne reaction with KMnO4 and O3

Molecule 1: 5 carbon ring, carbon 1 has a carbon attached which also is triple bonded to another carbon (this end carbon just has a H attached.) There is also a double bond between carbons 1 and 2 in the ring. Predict the product when this reacts with KMnO4 in H30+.

Molecule 2: I have a 6 carbon ring. C1 has a C which is also triple bonded to a Carbon which is attached to a H. Carbon 2 is attached to a methyl group. There is a double bond between C3 & C4 in the ring. Predict this reaction with O3.
