Key Concept
IUPAC Naming of Organic Compounds
Explanation
The correct IUPAC name for the compound is based on the longest carbon chain, the position of substituents and double bonds, and the stereochemistry. The compound has a six-carbon chain with two hydroxyl groups on carbons 2 and 4, double bonds between carbons 2-3 and 4-5, and a methyl group on carbon 5. The double bonds have (Z) configuration (cis), hence the correct name is (2Z)-5-methylhexa-2,4-diene-2,4-diol.
