For this structure found on page 24 of the Introduction to Organic Chemistry book, I'm having a hard time understanding why you name this structure the way you do. It says that cyclopropyl is the substituent that is attached to carbon atom number two of pentane, but if you consider that the second carbon atom, wouldn't that be a six carbon chain instead of a five carbon chain? And also, why is the methyl on the third carbon excluded from the name?
