struggling to get this to come out right:
(i) identify any functional groups in compounds 1 & 2 by circling them and naming them clearly.
(ii) complete the equation for reaction 1 by drawing the abbreviated structural formula(e) of the product(s) of this reaction (in place of the question mark). Identify any functional groups in the organic product(s) by circling them and naming them clearly.
The board does not recognize spaces so you can put in all the spaces you want and the board ignores them. That's why you need to make line drawings with an explanation of what is attached to which carbon for those groups that won't fit on one line.
I can try to write
CH2=CHCH2CH(OH)CH3 this way OR this way
And you notice the CH3 on the bottom comes out attached to the CH2= at the front of the molecule instead of where it belongs.
