E2 Reaction: has anti-periplanar requirement → β-H and leaving group must be anti-coplanar
No β-H anti-coplanar with –Cl:
Doing a ring flip:
Draw the major product as a planar projection (not chair conformation) for the E2 reaction below. Do not include stereochemical configurations for the chirality centers.
