It is a simple oxidation from naphthalen to phthalicacid and later to the anhydride or imide.

Check Phthalic acid anhydride

It is a redox reaction. Vanadium-V-oxide will be reduced to vanadium-III-oxide. This takes places several times by adding to Napthalen and oxidising the carbon. At the end Pthalic acid anhydride is remaining.

It is also redox reaction of xylene or o-Methylbenzoic acid with permanganate to phthalic acid. Manganese dioxide will be formed.

You have liquid. Ethanol decompose to ethylene an water by treating with sulfuric. So ethylene escapes the solution.

1) Naphthalene is obtained by the fractional distillation of coal tar.
2) Naphthalene is not soluble in ethanol.
3) Naphthalene is an aromatic compound.
4) Naphthalene is solid and easily sublimates.
5) Naphthalene has deliquescence.
6) Naphthalene easily undergoes electrophilic aromatic substitution.

Answer: 2 and 5

Draw it by yourself on a paper. How many possibilities you have?

Second one check the behaviour of napthalen.
