    carbon-carbon single covalent bond
    ionic bonds


3. Which of the following alkenes doesn't exist?
    pentene
    octene
    methene
    butene


4. By which of the following reactions do you obtain ethane from ethene (ethylene)?
    Hydrogenation (Addition of Hydrogen)

    Hydration
    Substitution


5. When ethene (ethylene) undergoes a chemical reaction with water in the presence of sulfuric acid, it produces a compound (A).
What exactly is the compound (A)?
    methanol (methyl alcohol)
    ethane
    acetic acid
    ethanol (ethyl alcohol)


6. Sometimes we can obtain alcohol from an alkene. What is the functional group of any alcohol?
    carboxyl functional group
    None of these
    carbon-carbon single covalent bond
    hydroxyl group


7. An alcohol reacts with acetic acid to produce two compounds.
What is the chemical name of acetic acid?
    None of these

    methanoic acid
    None of these
    methyl alcohol (methanol)
    water


9. Esters are compounds that are used in industry. What is (are) its use(s)?
    flavor and odor
    preservative
    insecticidal
    all of these


10. Ethanol (ethyl alcohol), ester, and acetic acid contain both carbon and hydrogen atoms, but are they hydrocarbons?
    No, because hydrocarbons don't have functional groups, while these compounds do.
    Yes, since they are produced by hydrocarbons.
    No, because they contain the atom oxygen.
    No, because hydrocarbons are only of three kinds.
