- Oct 10, 2017
- MCAT Question of the Day
Click for Explanation
A chiral carbon, C, is bonded to four different substituent groups: A, B, C, and D. Choice B has just been rotated 90 degrees: groups A and C are still out of the page in the same relative position while groups B and D are still in to the page in the correct relative position. All other choices are flawed with non-identical bonding arrangement, so B is the correct answer.
