Very good quiz apart from the fact that the last question is wrong- it should be on opposite sides. :)

Thanks for pointing it out. I did know that, I must of forgot to tick the correct one whilst making the quiz!

Question 4 is wrong. Its 2-methyl-but-2ene because you start from the side where the branched chain is closest to the first carbon where in this case its on the right hand side.

It isn't wrong because the position of the fuctional group which is the carbon carbon double bond comes first. 2-methyl but-2-ene would be CH3C(CH3)CHCH3
