🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Ganem's class at CORNELL.

Solution: A “planar representation” of a substituted cyclohexane ring is given below. Complete the chair conformation by filling in the missing substituent groups.  It is only necessary to show bonds to groups that  are not hydrogen in your chair conformation. To help you get started, a reference carbon is marked with an asterisk in the “planar” representation. This reference carbon is also marked with an asterisk in the chair “skeleton” that is provided. You don’t need to draw the other chair conformation, but please indicate which statement is true about the relative stability of the chair conformations by marking the appropriate box with the symbol “X”.
