Here are a few pointers,
1) if your house still use gas to cook, that is butane in there. Butane is an alkane. - look up use of hydrocarbons. Wait, you should look up definitions for hydrocarbons if you don't already know it.
2) alcohols - well, think of wines, ports, vodka, whiskey, etc. There is a % by volume right? What does that mean?
3) Carboxylic acid - geez, let me see, HCl is an inorganic acid. an organic acid consists of the -CO2H functionality. They possess acidic characteristics. eg. citric acid -look up organic acids.
4) Esters - what are esters? how is it formed? uses of esters? - those are questions you should be asking (and trying to find out yourself).
