    Alright so just analyze the 3 parts of the name: "sec" "but" and "yl". "yl" means it's a substituent to some other group, meaning it's attached to some other group. We don't what that group is since it's not in the name here so we'll just call that R. "but" means it contains 4 carbons. "sec" means it's connected to the R group at a point that's connected to 2 carbons.
