Solution: For the two questions below, an incorrect name has been given for an alkane. To answer these questions, you will need to draw the structure described by the incorrect name. Once you have drawn the structure, use the nomenclature rules to assign the correct name to the alkane. The incorrect name is: 2-methyl-3-ethylcyclohex-3-ene. What is the correct name of this alkane? A. 6-ethyl-1-methylcyclohex-1-ane B. 6-ethyl-1-methylhex-1-ene C. 1-ethyl-6-methylcyclohex-1-ene D. 1-ethyl-6-methylhex-1-ene E. None of the above
