Question

The molecules represented by the following two structures are

                                       

Solution

Correct option is

Identical

After two interchanges at each of the two chiral carbon atoms in second structure in such a way that CH3 group is help vertically upward and C2H5group vertically downward, we get first structure.

                                   

Thus, the two structures are identical.
