NS FL2 C/P Q17

Post by NS_Tutor_Thomas » Fri Jun 14, 2019 5:32 pm

A student recently wrote us: "Pentane has 3 structural isomers."

Yes, pentane does have 3 structural isomers. However, the question stem specifically asks for "additional structural isomers" to the straight-chain hydrocarbon, which would be two more. It's very important to make sure one understands the question before proceeding to answering the question.

Thanks for your question. I hope this helps!
