Draw (using modified Fischer projections and placing the NHCH 3 group on the top and the Ph group at the bottom), and label (using the correct stereochemical designations) all stereoisomers expected. If a compound is meso, you need not draw its enantiomer as long as you label it as such (“meso”). Hint: begin by determining how many possible stereoisomers there can be.
