Question

May I have an explanation for how you know which atom at the chiral center is wedged or dashed for both before and after rotating? Unless the problem specifically shows which is wedged or dashed from the get-go, I'm pretty much guessing which atom is sticking out or away after determining the CIP 1-4 step.
