b. CH3 CH3
CH3--CH--CH--CH3

c. CH3 CH3
CH3--CH2--CH--CH2--CH--CH3

d. CH2--CH3
CH3--CH2--CH--CH--CH2--CH3
I
CH2--CH3

    It is difficult to handle spacing on the board; it ignores any spaces after the first one. Try drawing condensed structures for these.
    For example, propane is
    CH3CH2CH3 and 2-methyl propane would be
    CH3CH(CH3)CH3
    In general, find the longest chain that includes the most triple/double bonds and name that as the base, then add the groups to that base name.

    Ans b-hecsane ans c-octane
