Inspecting the choices:
a) 2-methyl-1-octene → alkene → signal around 1600 for C=C stretching
b) 1-pentanol → alcohol → signal around 3600-3000 for O-H stretching
c) butyl methyl ether → ether → signal around 1400-1000 for C-O stretching
Match the IR spectrum to one of the following three compounds:
c) butyl methyl ether
