Just a few more questions! Which of the following statements best describes the stereochemical relationships of compounds A, B and C? a. A and B are chiral b. A and B are meso compounds c. A and B are diastereomers and C is a meso compound d. all of the compounds are chiral e. none of the compounds are chiral 2. How many stereoisomers are possible for the following compound? 3. Would this be achiral? (I just need a few minutes to draw the structures for each question!)

    For question 1, I was thinking the answer is A but i'm not completely sure For question 2, I know to use the formula 2^n , where n=# of chiral centers, again i'm not sure if i'm counting the chiral centers correctly but I came up with 8 for question 3: I thought that since each center carbon has different substituents that it was considered achiral...I don't know if this thought process is correct
