1. $\mathrm{HOOC}\left(\mathrm{CH}_{2}\right)_{4} \mathrm{COOH}, \mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{~N}\left(\mathrm{CH}_{2}\right)_{6} \mathrm{NH}_{2}$

2. $\mathrm{HOOC}\left(\mathrm{CH}_{2}\right)_{6} \mathrm{COOH}, \mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{~N}\left(\mathrm{CH}_{2}\right)_{6} \mathrm{NH}_{2}$

3. $\mathrm{HOOC}\left(\mathrm{CH}_{2}\right)_{4} \mathrm{COOH}, \mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{~N}\left(\mathrm{CH}_{2}\right)_{4} \mathrm{NH}_{2}$

4. $\mathrm{HOOC}\left(\mathrm{CH}_{2}\right)_{6} \mathrm{COOH}, \mathrm{H}_{2} \mathrm{~N}\left(\mathrm{CH}_{2}\right)_{4} \mathrm{NH}_{2}$

Correct Option: 1

Solution:

Adipic acid (having 6C) and hexamethylene diamine (having $6 \mathrm{C}$ ).
