    if you had a chlorine attached to benzene would you name it cholorobenzene or phenylchloride

    if you had an amine attached to a hexane would you name it hexylamine or 1-aminohexane

    ??? slightly confusing

    in what scenario would you name a product with a benzene as phenyl as the prefix?

    in what scenario would you name a product with a amine as amino as the prefix?

    For the second one, if you have more than one functional group then you need to rank them in order of preference.
