Hello Lovelyn,

The -ane ending indicated the molecule has single bonds throughout it. The -ene ending means that there is a dounle bond within the molecule. The -yne ending indicated there is a triple bond within the molecule. The -ol ending indicates there is an alcohol group (OH) on the molecule.
