Answer:

There are 23 σ bonds in a molecule of 2-propylpent-1-ene.

Explanation:

The structural formula of 2-propylpent-1-ene is

2Pr

Every #"C-C"# and every #"C-H"# single bond is a σ bond.

Every #"C=C"# double bond consists of a σ bond and a π bond.

There are 6 #"C-C"# bonds, 16 #"C-H"# bonds, and 1 #"C=C"# bond.

Thus, there are 23 σ bonds in the molecule.
