Answer:

#7# single bonds in total.

Explanation:

In 1 molecule of ethane, there are #6# #xx# #C-H# bonds, and #1# #xx# #C-C# bond. So #7# bonds exist in total. This would immediately be appreciated had I drawn out a skeletal formula of ethane. Can you tell me how many single bonds there are in a mole of ethane? How about the number of single bonds in 1 molecule of propane?
