Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by chem on Tuesday, December 28, 2010 at 2:46pm.

On complete oxidation, one mole of an organic compound produced four moles of water. Which one of the following substances could it be?

CH4
C2H6
C3H7OH
C4H10

So I added O2 to each of these compounds, but I must be doing something wrong because I can't get 4 moles of water. Help? Thanks.
