Remember single bonded carbons are '-ane' , double bonded carbons are '-ene' and triple bonded carbons are '-yne', Alkanes, Alkenes & Alkynes respectively.
Look for the longest carbon chain, (including round the 'dog leg'). In this case '6', so it is 'hex'.
Look for the functional group in the chain , in this case it is the triple bond (-yne). So it is numbered from the lowest carbon end, in this case the right end.
Finally, look for any branches in the chain , in this case it is a 'methyl' on carbon number '5'.
It is NOT '2-methyl hex-4-yne'.

Could you please stop labeling your questions with meaningless phrases? This one should be headed something like
