I will try to answer this question by giving some examples:

This is one alkene with OH functional group. Since that functional group has priority, this is an alchocol. You are numbering the C atoms starting with those that have priority functional groups as substituent.

So this is 2 methylbut-2-ene-1-ol.

You are doing the same thing when ypu have an alkyne. Between alkene and alkyne, alkene has priority,
