Answer:

#"Butane"# can generate A PAIR of structural isomers...........

Explanation:

Straight chain #"n-butane"# has a normal boiling point of approx. #0# #""^@C#, #"isobutane"#, #"2-methylpropane"#, has a normal boiling point of approx. #-10# #""^@C#. Can you check these boiling points, and suggest why isobutane should be more volatile?
