    A) Why is GC not able to distinguish between the trans vs. cis-2-pentene products?

    b) Explain why the 3-pentanol 13C-NMR spectrum contains three peaks while the trans and cis-2-pentene spectra contain five peaks (note that 13C-NMR gives a peak for each unique carbon, i.e. identical carbons show up as the same peak).
