  4. d. three-carbon dicarboxylic acid

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

Common name for four-carbon monocarboxylic acid has to be given.

Concept Introduction:

In organic chemistry compounds are given common names also apart from IUPAC names.  Common names are derived from the Greek-letter system.  This is used in numbering of the carbon atoms in a carbon chain.  Common names are also derived from the Greek or Latin word that represents the source of the acid.

Common name for monocarboxylic acid is formed by taking Greek or Latin root name for the number of carbon atom that is appended by suffix “ic acid”

Explanation

The monocarboxylic acid that contains four carbon atoms structure is,

The Greek or Latin root for the ...
