Expert Answer:

1- methylpropane is simply n-butane..so no isomer of pentane can be made...
1,1-dimethylpropane is also substituted butane....
2,1- methylpropane is wrongly wriiteen ... it should be 1,2-dimethyl propane and still it doent exist isomerically as it is again substituted butane and not pentane...
