Solution for your first query,
 
Alkane: Alkanes are aliphatic hydrocarbons in which all the linkages between the carbon atoms are single covalent bonds. They represented by the general formula CnH2n+2.
Alkene: Alkenes are unsaturated aliphatic hydrocarbons that contain one double bond. They are represented by the general formula CnH2n.
Alkyne: Alkynes are aliphatic hydrocarbons that contains triple bond. They are represented by the general formula CnH2n-2.
