    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

    i. 2º
    ii. 3º
    iii. 1º
    iv. 2º

    3º= OHCR3
    2º=OHCHR2
    1º=OHCH2R

    Double check and post your answers if you have something different.
