How many structural isomers are there for hydrocarbons having the molecular formula C4H10?

Structural isomers have same molecular formula but different structural formula. Structural isomers for Butane having formula C4H10 are two. One is n-butane and the other is iso-butane.

Are butane and cyclobutane structural isomers?

Nope. Butane has a formula of C4H10. While cyclobutane has a formula of C4H8. They're not isomers, let alone structural isomers, at all! Because they don't have the same chemical formula.

If you can make two structural isomers for the saturated alkane C4H10 does that mean you can connect the carbons in two different patterns?

Yes, if you can make two structural isomers for the saturate alkane C4H10 it does mean you can connect the carbons in two different patterns.

Can molecules with the molecular formulas C4H10 and C4H10O be structural isomers of one another?

No, because the second formula contains an oxygen atom and the first formula does not. Structural isomers must have the same numbers of all types of atoms.
