yes, i believe so. Aldehydes is the one with C bonded to one or two H, and Ketones is the one with C bonded to two C. I think they share the structure "C=O" where two atoms can be bonded to the left of the C to make a total of four bonds around C. Hope it helps.
The difference between them is that aldehydes are at the end as they have at least one hydrogen attached to them while ketones continue as they do not have a hydrogen attached rather two carbon chains.

No, because then it would be an aldehyde. Aldehydes end the carbon chains and while ketones are located in the middle.
