    longest chain of C is 4 ... butane

     OH is an alcohol  ....  on the 2nd C so 2-butanol

      3rd C has a CH3 .. methyl group

     . . .numbering is done to give smallest number so you number from the right

    3methyl-2butanol

    I am not great on punctuation .. haven't done it in over 40 years so you decide where the hyphens or commas go in the name
