Answer:

Process of elimination (see below)

Explanation:

Isomers of a chemical formula, such as #C_4H_10O#, maintain the same chemical formula, but have different structural features. Note that #C_4H_10O# is very similar to #C_4H_10# (Butane). Also note that for every double bond or ring in a formula, you lose 2 Hydrogen atoms.

Because having 10 Hydrogens and an Oxygen atom will have taken up all the free spots, we say that #C_4H_10O# is saturated. Therefore, you do not have to worry about double bonds or rings.

Oxygen is a single bond. The only functional groups with a single bond are the alcohols (#OH# group) and ethers (#CO# branch).

Here is a video on how to draw them:
