I named this molecule (picture attached) 4-chloro-5-methylcyclopentan-2-ol. When checking my answers, the given answer was:
How would someone know that the cyclopentane is not directly attached to the carbon chain on the fifth carbon?
How can naming show that the fifth carbon is attached to another carbon that is part of the cyclopentane?
Could it be named: 4-chloro-6-cyclopentyl-5-methylhexan-2-ol? Or does that not work because the longest parent chain is not named properly?
