Problem: For the following dehydrohalogenation (E2) reaction draw the Zaitsev product(s) resulting from elimination involving C3-C4 (i.e., the carbon atoms depicted with stereobonds). Show the product stereochemistry clearly. If there is more than one organic product, both products may be drawn in the same box. Ignore elimination involving C3 and any carbon atom other than C4.

We're being asked to draw the Zaitsev product for the given dehydrohalogenation reaction:



Recall that dehydrohalogenation is the E2 reaction of an alkyl halide. Zaitsev rule states that the more stable (more substituted) alkene product will be formed.
