Problem: Draw the Fischer projection for the monosaccharide drawn as a Haworth projection below. Switch between an aldose and a ketose by clicking on "switch carbonyl group." Add or delete carbon atoms using the add ("+") or delete ("x") buttons. Clicking on a blue box once adds a hydrogen atom (H). Clicking on a blue box again toggles between H and OH.

For this problem, we have to draw the Fischer projection for the monosaccharide drawn as Haworth projection:


The steps on converting Haworth structure to Fischer projection will appear as:

Step 1. Determine the anomeric C and label each C with proper locants

Step 2. Draw the skeleton of the Fischer projection with proper # of Cs

Step 3. Complete the structure by adding the -OHs
