Select the correct structural formula for 4-ethyl1-1,5heptadiene
A). ch2=ch-ch2-ch ch=ch-ch3
Ch3
B) ch3=ch-ch2-ch-ch=ch-ch3
C2h5
c) ch2=ch-ch2-ch=ch-ch2-ch3
c2h5
Heptadiene has seven carbons in its longest chain. All of the formulas match this. There will be double bonds at the 1 and 5 carbon. Only compounds A and B match this. 4-ethyl means there is an ethyl group at the fourth carbon. This is compound B.

2 structural formula for 1,1,3-triethylcyclohexane

The base is cyclohexane, a ring with 6 carbons. There will be ethyl groups (2 carbons) on the 1st, 1st, and 3rd carbons:

3 structural formula for 3-methylpentane
Pentane has 5 carbons. 3-methyl means there is a methyl group (CH3) on the 3rd carbon:

...
