F.25

For F.25 (b), do we write (CH2)2(NH2)2 or H2N(CH2)2NH2 for molecular formula?

For the molecular formula, you only really need to get the # of elements in the molecule correctly listed. If you want to state something about the structure and bond arrangements with your formula, then how you write will matter.
