This stuff with number of atoms/moles etc. becomes sort of circular, it causes many students confusion. One day it will just become second nature to you if you keep working on problems.

For this question, make sure you keep the stoichiometry in mind: there are more than 10 H atoms in this molecule if I have it correct - there are ...
