Yes. But the 240 G5 comes with several different processor options and what kind of memory it needs depends on the processor. But even the lowest end machine can accept a single 8 gb module.

That is why I linked you to the Service Manual. Tell us first what processor you have as it makes a difference in what kind of memory you need to buy and how many slots are in there.

If its a 6th gen platform Pentium it has one slot and if its 7th it has two. In either case it is DDR3L-1600 SO-DIMM. 

 

Video might be better for you than a Manual:
