Expert Answer:

A homologous series is a group of organic compounds having a similar structure and similar chemical properties in which the successive compounds differ by a CH2 group.

Ethene is the first member and propene is the second member of the alkene series.

Structure of ethene and propene is given below:

CH2 = CH2             CH3 - CH = CH2

 Ethene                    propene
