isomeric alkanes

Do isomeric alkanes have to have a methyl group attached? Does this methyl group have to be on a specific carbon? For reference, I am stuck on the 2011 final question 6. I thought the methyl group for an isomer had to be on carbon 2 but the 3-methylepentane isomer has it located on carbon 3. Why?

Elements before the brackets

Do you include elements from groups 1 and 2 and their charge when you are figuring out the oxidation? These elements appear before the brackets. Thank you!
