Q1 what is the formula for quinoline? Q2 What is the main difference b/w aldehydes and ketones?

1. Molecular formula is C9H7N
2. Aldehydes and ketones are similar in that they are both chemicals that have an oxygen atom bonded via a double bond to a carbon atom. When this (C=O) part of the chemical structure is at the end of a carbon chain (the carbon atom is bonded to one other carbon atom, one hydrogen atom, plus the double bond with an oxygen atom), this is an aldehyde. When the carbon double bonded to oxygen atom is in the middle of a carbon chain, (bonded to 2 other carbon atoms, one on each side), we have a ketone.
We hope that clarifies your query.
