Expert Answer:

  •  Alkanes are the class of organic compounds containing only carbon and hydrogen where the carbon atoms are joined to one another using only single covalent bonds. While naming the alkanes, “ane” is added to the parent chain.
  •  Alkenes are the class of organic compounds consisting of carbon and hydrogen which have at least one or more carbon-carbon double bond. While naming the alkenes, “ene” is added to the name of the parent chain.
  •   Alkynes include the class of organic compounds when at least one or more carbon-carbon triple bond is present. In this case, “yne” is added to the name of the parent chain.
