Question: enter image description here Multiple correct answers are possible

My Approach:

I just found structure Q for all options A, B, C and D for which I have uploaded the structures below with their corresponding options.

enter image description here

Of course, option B cannot be correct since the molecular formula of the compound Q doesn't match with the one obtained after the reductive ozonolysis. What I know about Molisch test is it gives the violet ring when an alcoholic solution of 1-naphthol is added to the carbohydrate solution. But I don't know how to proceed after this step as I don't know how to identify which of the compounds react with Molisch reagent.
