FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to determine the relationship between each pair of structures.



Recall that:

enantiomers are non-superimposable, mirror images

diastereomers are non-superimposable, non-mirror images


We can quickly identify the relationship by determining the mirror image one of the molecules.
