    What do you guys get? I'm not getting any of these answers. It should be simple but I'm officially frustrated now. Please help. Thank you image.jpg

    You count the longest carbon chain, so you're not counting straight across. So there's nine carbons (nonane) and then you count the substituents on the carbon. So the answer is (d): 5-ethyl - 2- methylnonane

    This is a really easy question; don't think so hard
