Expert Answer

Step 1

Dear student, since we are entitled to answer up to 3 sub-parts, we'll answer the first 3 as you have not mentioned the subparts you need help with. Please resubmit the question and specify the other subparts you'd like to get answered. 

a) The given compound is 2-Chloro-3-methylhexane

Hex implies that the principal chain has six carbon atoms.

-ane implies that the compound is saturated

At 2nd position of the chain, chloro substituent is attached and at the 3rd position, a methyl substituent is attched. The valency of carbon is four and is satisfied by the hydrogen atoms. Thus, the structural formula of the compound is:

Step 2

b) 2,2,3-Trichloroheptane

Hept implies that the principal chains contains seven carbon atoms.

Two chloro substituents are attached a...
