#1. what is the name of the given compound?
Do I use "4- " or "para- " to metion "Cl"?

#2. what product result?
a) 2-ethoxy butane
b) 2-ethoxypropane
c) 2-ethoxy-1propanol
d) 3-ethoxy-2-propanol
e) 1-ethoxy-2-propanol

For #2,
under basic condition, SN 2 occurs
but under acidic condition, SN 2 occurs when monosubstituted or disubstituted, and SN 1 occurs when trisubstituted. According to this logic, the answer is d, but Orgo Odyssey said the answer is C.

I'd think you should use 4- as para would be for benzene rings.

For #2, the compound isnt trisubstituted, so it would occur in an SN2 reaction.
