This is the kind of structural formula we need to draw:

66184171-492-E-4-E24-96-EA-9-D774-B1-ED958.jpg

I took help from Reddit. Here is the attempt: 61252-CB0-CA97-4-A20-A366-3-D818-BCC89-C1.jpg

I have done one more attempt: enter image description here

Though the 4th carbon of the left condensed version needs to have a hydrogen added, did not take a picture of that.

Sorry to say but the question is inappropriate! It is supposed to be 3-ethyl-5-methylhept-3-ene. Here's the solution:enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ First of all, thank you so very much! Now I know my answer is correct. (Got some help from Reddit before seeing your solution) The thing is, I really am innocent, just copied the question from the worksheet, you can look at the added picture, but I am still glad I was able to learn the correct naming structure for branched hydrocarbons. P.S. Nice handwriting. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ It's not the question that's inappropriate, it's the name doesn't follow current nomenclature guidelines. Please familiarize yourself with How to ask and answer nomenclature questions? Here it would more make sense to cite a related rule or set of rules from the IUPAC Blue Book to back up your answer. $\endgroup$
