    RXN #1 and #4 will give you the same product as reactants...so thats out of the question...RXN #3 will does a substiution RXN or even an elimation RXN which will give you two alkene product or a single substitution RXN

    so now youre down to RXN 2 and 5...if you can see RXN 2 its a primary so it has to go to SN2 or Elimation...but it will give you two products also depending on the adjacent hydrogens you want to take....so that leaves us with RXN #5...no matter what hydrogen you take from any of the adjacent carbons it will give you 1 product and 1 product only
