We have to write the structural formulas for the given alcohols and classify them.

The name of an alcohol is written with the suffix -ol that is added after the parent chain name.

Parent chain name is given on the basis of longest chain of carbon atoms in the structure.

For example:

Methane = 1

Ethane = 2

Propane = 3
