For the following E2 reaction, draw the transition state that leads to the predominant product(s), indicating geometry and stereochemistry with wedges and dashes. We will be paying particular attention to the geometry of your transition state. No need to show any arrows for moving electrons here, we are just interested in the transistion state and product structures. In your transition state structure, be sure to show bonds being made or broken as dotted lines
