    I doubt it's ( 3 or 4 ). If to saturate we count the CHO so 4 if we don't 3

    Well in order to saturate the compound you would have to get rid of all the double bonds in the compound. How many double bonds is there in the compound?

    3 in the C6H6 , 1 in CHO

    Well, but some double bonds are not counted sometimes. Aldehyde is a functional group. and if we saturated it the compound will lose it's functions. CHOH Now Alcohol?

    You would break the C=C double bonds only not the C=O bonds when counting the hydrogens

    Yes you would have the three bonds located in the benzene ring. For each bond broken you would need two hydrogens (2H) or one hydrogen molecule (H2)
