1. Draw a Fischer-projection for each of the sugars and assign the corresponding stereochemical descriptor D or L.
2. Assign stereochemical descriptors (R or S) for the labeled stereogenic centers (a-e) in the anticancer drug Taxol:

The number of stereoisomers is given by 2^n where n is the number of chiral centers. There are 11 stereocenters, hence 2^11 stereoisomers. ...
This solution helps with a problem regarding sterochemical descriptors.
