We use the obstruction theory of Blanc-Dwyer-Goerss to study the realization space of certain - algebras with 2 non-trivial groups. The main technical tool is a result on the Quillen cohomology of truncated -algebras, which is an instance of comparison map induced by an adjunction. We study in more generality the behavior of Quillen (co)homology with respect to adjunctions. As a first step toward applying the obstruction theory to 3-types, we develop methods to compute Quillen cohomology of 2-truncated -algebras via a generalization of group cohomology.
