Solution

The correct option is C chain isomerism
When two or more compounds have a similar molecular formula but different carbon skeleton, they are called chain isomers and phenomenon is known as chain isomerism.

Since all three compounds have the same molecular formula

(C5H12) but different carbon skeleton, thus they are chain isomers

Hence, the correct option is D.
