Step 1

(a)

All the possible structures with the molecular formula C4H8 can be drawn by arranging the four carbon atoms and eight hydrogen atoms in a carbon chain or ring in all possible ways.  The degree of unsaturation in the molecule with molecular formula C4H8 is calculated as follows:

Step 2

Hence, in the structure of the isomers of C4H8 one unsaturated centre is present that is either a double bond or a ring must be present.

The structure of five constitutional isomers having molecular formula C4H8 are shown as follows:
