Classify as primary, secondary, tertiary alcohols.
Here is how you tell them apart.
primary: C holding the OH group has two H atoms; i.e., RCH2OH.
secondary: C holding the OH has 1 H atom; i.e., R2CHOH.
tertiary: C holding the OH group has no H atoms; i.e., R3C-OH
Double check and post your answers if you have something different.
