Explanation: Alkyne is an unsaturated hydrocarbon.
i. The unsaturated hydrocarbons containing carbon to carbon triple bond are called alkynes.
ii. Alkynes are named by replacing suffix of alkane with “-yne”.
iii. The first member of alkane is ethane.
iv. Thus, the first member of alkyne is named as ethyne.
Note: The unsaturated hydrocarbons are those which contain carbon to carbon double bonds C=C or carbon to carbon triple bonds -CΞC- in their molecules.
