For preparation of 1-bromobutane:

So my answer (g then b) was incorrect. I thought that the bulky strong base of b would do E2 on 2-bromobutane, making it but-1-ene, then just add HBr. What's wrong with my way of thinking?

The organic layer in the 1-bromobutane washing is always the lower of the two layers.

The 1-bromobutane will be contaminated with water, unchanged butan-1-ol, and some sulphuric acid carried over as tiny droplets during the distillation.

I don't fully understand reaction Mechanism (for Organic chemistry). Could someone explain it to me?

The hydroxyl fragment isn't a good leaving group, unless the medium is acidic. Using just HBr, you can convert the hydroxyl group into an oxonium ion (the H2O fragment would be a good leaving group). Upon heterolysis of the C-O bond, a hydride shift occurs simultaneously to create a secondary carbocation. The exogenous bromide can act as a nucleophile towards the secondary carbocation to form 2-bromobutane.

Probably the large difference in percent yield (19.96 to 40.65) is due to not enough care being taken in separating the layers and washing at each step of production of 1-bromobutane. The container should be capped and mixed thoroughly, and the separation to be complete before separating. Also, minimal product should be discarded along with the inorganic layer of the separation.
