Problem: Draw a structural formula for the more stable carbocation intermediate formed in the reaction shown. • You do not have to consider stereochemistry.  • Do not include anionic counter-ions, e.g., I-, in your answer. • For cases in which carbocations of the same or similar stability are expected, draw all of the structures. • Draw one structure per sketcher. Add additional sketchers using the drop-down menu in the bottom right corner.• Separate structures with + signs from the drop-down menu.
