Actually, hydrocarbons are very choosy. They have preferences of giving some substituent/functional group high positions and some low. The suffix -ol refers to the alcohol group and has a preference of getting the lowest position possible, except in some cases. I'll list down the functional groups and substituents in their preference order for your reference later. Hope this helps...
