    yes, thats correct
    do you not add a number because if its not propan-1-ol it has to be the middle one?

    Thanks for your reply. And, I think this is another way to write it? CH3CH2CH2OH

    In this case, is it necessary to insert parantheses around OH?

    no, you can assume it's propan-1-ol if nothing else is given.
    Propan-2-ol would have the OH on the C-atom in the middle

    No, thats also fine.
    you could have writte the other one as: HOCH2-etc., if you didn't want to use parantheses as well.
