  1. Not exactly sure what you mean by 'proper name'.

    This is a hexane (longest C chain)

    There is an OH at C-3 and a methyl group at C-1, counting from the left as drawn above. [counting from the right gives a higher number].

    Hence it is

    1-methyl-3-hexanol, or
    1-methyl-hexan-3-ol

    The absolute configuration of C-3 is not stated, so

    (+/-)-1-methyl-3-hexanol.

    My question above 'Not exactly sure what you mean by 'proper name'?' is because there is more than one system for naming compounds.
