the full name of the compound is ___________ 
220.                                                                                     3-ethyl pentane

The longest chain in the compound has (how many?) ________carbon atoms 

The compound is a sort of _________ 
221.                                                                                    octane

Two methyl radicals attached to the same carbon
would not be called "methyl" but would be called _______

In the same way two ethyl radicals on the same chain
would be called ________ 
223.                                                                                     diethyl

are attached to the chain __________ 

What kind of radicals are they? 
224.                                                                                     ethyl

The compound shown in the diagram above
has a carbon chain of eight atoms and is
therefore some sort of ________
