If a compound contain two or more functional groups the important thing to learn the suffix and prefix name of all the functional groups. there is also a seniority table according to which we can select the junior and senior group.and then name them.
for eg ; CH3CH(OH)CH2CHO
In this compound the junior group is OH,so we use its prefix name(Hydroxy)
The name of this compound is = 3-hydroxy-butanal-1
