Answer:

There are many structures that could satisfy the criteria.

Explanation:

Your structure,

#"CH"_3"-CH=CH-CH=CH-O-CH"_2"-OH"#

is one of them.

It has both an alcohol and an ether functional group.

It does not matter where you put the #"O"# atoms, except that the #"OH"# group should be on a saturated carbon.

An #"OH"# group on a #"C=C"# double bond is called an enol.

An enol is usually unstable and rearranges to an aldehyde or a ketone, but it is still an acceptable structure.
