(Mark scheme answer)

The question told me to draw N-methyl, N-ethyl - 2-aminobutane

Shouldn't the amino be attached to the second carbon of butane?

Horrible way of writing the name but I guess thats IUPAC fot you!!

You haven't got the N on the 2 position of the butane- otherwise looks good

The diagram shows ...1-aminobutane.

It would have to be:

IICH3-CH-CH2-CH3
IIIIIIIIIIIII
C2H5-N-CH3
