Dear Student
Preference should be given to functional group, then the unsaturation and at last to the substituents. 
  • A root or base indicating a major chain or ring of carbon atoms found in the molecular structure.
  • A suffix or other element(s) designating functional groups that may be present in the compound.
  • Names of substituent groups, other than hydrogen, that complete the molecular structure.
We hope that clarifies your query.
