Here's one of those cases where carbon is more electronegative than the atom it's attached to. remember lithium is a metal so it's probably going want to exist as Li+ because losing an electron fills it's octet, it looks like this a complex. |dw:1446938798972:dw|

|dw:1446938958438:dw| I feel that because the epoxide, that both sides are susceptible to this nucleophile attacking. what you really have is a carbanion in disguise I feel that it attacks the expoxide from the opposite side, and has a 50:50 chance of attacking either carbon because I feel that they both have the same number of substituents.

@jerrijones let's try to see why the other three might be wrong

I don't think it's A/c This is a carbanion so you cant dump any more electrons onto it. it's more likely that it's going to dump it's electrons onto the oxygen to generate an alkoxide ion, an oxygen with a negative charge. so this is out. |dw:1446939487526:dw| I think B/D depend on what face the carbanion attacks the molecule from. you see that the epoxide is facing up because of the wedges. the carbanion must attack from the opposite side, that was my logic behind this question which would lead to generating this. hence it comes in from the back side. |dw:1446939699999:dw| then the alkoxide does displaces the iodine in an SN2 like fashion. that was my reasoning behind that reaction. |dw:1446939746870:dw| Hope this helped you
