10.21     Primary alkyl halide C_{4}H_{9}Br (a) reacted with alcoholic KOH to give compound (b). Compound (b) is reacted with HBr to give (c) which is an isomer of (a). When (a) is reacted with sodium metal it gives compound (d), C_{8}H_{18} which is different from the compound formed when n-butyl bromide is reacted with sodium. Give the structural formula of (a) and write the equations for all the reactions.

With the given formula we have two alkyl halides They are n - butyl bromide and isobutyl bromide.

For the first set of reaction we get two possibilities:- 

                                          

Therefore compound (d) is 2, 5-dimethylhexane.
