The condensed method is a common way to describe the connectivity of a molecule using only text.
The use of parentheses is important:
First, draw the bondline structure:
Root: but → 4 carbon alkane
Modifier: yne → alkyne (triple bond)
locant: 1 → Carbon 1
Substituents : methyl → 1 C alkane
locant: 3 → Carbon 3
Draw the condensed structure of 3-methyl-1-butyne.
