    8. B and C would rotate a plane of polarized light.

    B has a chiral centre to which four different substituents are attached: -H, -CH3, -OH and -CH2CH3.
    C has two chiral centres to which four different substituents are attached: -CH3, -H, -OH ...

    Solution Summary

    Three multiple choice questions demonstrate how compounds rotate planes of polarized light. Also discussed are major products for reactions and reactions most likely to occur through carbocation intermediate.
