Great! Your answer is right!

One signal is due to the protons bound to carbon 2 and 5, the second is due to the protons bound to carbons 3 and 4.
It is the number of groups of equivalent protons that determins the number of signals in a 1H NMR spectrum.

Here is another opportunity for you to practice the identification of equivalent protons:

Which protons in these substances are equivalent to each other?
How many signals do you expect in the 1H NMR spectra of these substances?
