The above question is incomplete. Full question is attached below.......................................................................................................................Correct answer: Option D that is to say, CH3CH2CH2CH2CH3Reason:Isomers are compounds that have same molecular formula, but different structural formula.The molecular formula of the compound is C5H12The compound present is the question (that is, 2-methyl butane), and option D (n-pentane) has the same molecular formula. Therefore, they are isomers.However, the compound present in the option a, is the same compound always in question. Therefore, it is not an isomer. Compounds reported in the option B and C has a carbon atom less and more, respectively, in comparison with the compound reported in question. Therefore, they are not isomers.
