    Start by identifying the carbon cycle - cyclopentane

    It's a ketone - cyclopentanone

    It has two substituents...try putting them in position and alphabetic order

    P.S. I have moved this thread to the chemistry study help forum

    That's pretty much correct . Although I'm not sure the 1 in "...1-one" is necessary. It's the highest priority functional group so it's automatically given the 1 position. If it were in any other position (and everything else stayed the same) then it would be numbering of the other groups which would reflect that.
