Nomenclature (using IUPAC)

Which one is the correct systematic name for compund (a), N-hydroxyaniline or N-phenylhydroxylamine ?

Also, how should we name compound (b), 2,2-dichloro-1-ethylcycloheptane or 1,1-dichloro-2-ethylcycloheptane ?

no problem. however i should point out that (b) has a chiral center on C2, this will change it's IUPAC name depending on where the ethyl group is located (R or S).
