Can someone please explain how to get the answer right ?
hi is the answer C? The valency of the carbon to which Methyl is attached isn’t fulfilled and thus the formula of pentane is c5h12 but the whole distribution of hydrogens in that molecule is throughly wrong
Yes right , thank you
why? it’s connected to 4 methyl groups
Connected to 3 not 4
Carbon #2 misses one hydrogen, and carbon #3 cannot have 5 covalent bonds. Therefore C is the correct answer.
