Synthesize two of the attached compounds from the indicated starting materials. You may also use any organic compounds containing three or less carbon atoms, benzene, N-bromosuccinimide, triphenylphosphine, meta-chloroperbenzoic acid (MCPBA), methylvinyl ketone, lithium diisopropylamide (LDA), ethyl acetoacetate (acetoacetic ester) and diethyl malonate (malonic ester), as well as any inorganic reagents.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:55 pm ad1c9bdddf

In the case of the aromatic problem, I have provided two suggestions, and you can choose which one best fits in with the chemistry you currently have an understanding of. All the remainder are pretty self-explanatory. It is important to try and develop the use of retrosynthesis since it is much easier to work backwards from the product than forwards from the starting material, if you get my meaning.
