Answer:

#C_6H_10O#

Explanation:

Looking at the molecular formula, there are clearly TWO degrees of unsaturation (i.e. as compared to a saturated hydrocarbon, which has a general formula of #C_nH_(2n+2)O#). This corresponds to (i) the carbonyl group, and (ii) the ring junction.......

Of course, the given formula could correspond to other molecules.
