On what basis am I supposed to select the parent chain in the IUPAC nomenclature?

Expert Answer:

select the longest but continuous carbon chain that means the chain should contain only carbon atoms. If there happen to be any other atom in between, e.g. C-O-C or C=N-C, this is not the carbon chain.
