    hi,
    for the alcohol part, could it be butan-1-ol as well, like does it matter where the alcohol group goes,
    thanks

    See, the butan-2-ol is a secondary alcohol whereas the butan-1-ol is a primary alochol, as secondary alcohols undergo dehydration more easily as compared to the primary ones ,butan-2-ol would be the better answer.
