Alkanes are saturated hydrocarbons with single bonds. They are classified as follows -
Straight Chain: Alkanes, where carbon atoms are being attached in a continuous chain, are called straight chain alkanes or normal alkanes. 
2. Branched Chain: Alkanes, where carbon atoms are not in a continuous chain and are linked with other carbon atoms to make branches are called branched chain alkanes.
