While searching for practice

While searching for practice exams and training material for my two exams [url=]000-973[/url] and [url=]70-528[/url], I came across your website. I found it good for me. It contains useful posts having informative material for study especially related to science subjects. I have studied chemistry during my O-level study but after that I did not study chemistry. According to my point of view, the equation you have written as a possible answer is correct. But I can't say that I am 100% right but I think its right equation. These days I am taking my exams including [url=]642-072[/url] and [url=]920-803[/url] so I can't search for the correct answer. But you don't worry I will do so after my exams. thanks...

a) (CH3)2-CHCl + CH3-CH2-O(-)Na(+) --> (CH3)2-CH-O-CH2-CH3 + NaCl
b) CH3-CH2-CH2-Cl + NH3 --> CH3-CH2-CH2-NH2 + HCl
