  3. NO it is NOT a carboxylic acid because instead of a -COOH it has a SOOH

  5. I would call chloroethane an alkyl chloride. If alkanes are defined as hydrocarbons, and this compound also has Cl, then it is not an alkane.

  6. Hm..so then the alkyl halide is a derivative of an alkane. (slaps forehead for forgetting this)

  7. Yes, alkyl halides are made from alkanes (at least they are sometimes).
