    with all the bonds filled with H is 2-pentane or isopentane. (There is a third one; i.e., neopentane, in which the lowest C on the second structure is attached to the #2 carbon--the same one to which the other CH3 is attached.)

  2. I didn't name the isopentane (which is correct) correctly. It should be called 2-methyl butane.
