Naming organic compounds

what is the difference between C and E? and why is it C?

We only have 1 ethyl group attached to carbon 4, so be careful about that. Answer E indicates there are 2 ethyl groups (4,4-diethyl), which is incorrect.


I believe you got confused between ethyl and methyl groups. Ethyl have 2 carbons and methyl has one carbon
