If one member of an enantiomeric pair is a dextrorotatory compound then the other enantiomer

  1. a. must be a levorotatory compound
  2. b. must also be a dextrorotatory compound
  3. c. could be a levorotatory or a dextrorotatory compound
  4. d. no correct response

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: If one member of an enantiomeric pair is a dextrorotatory compound then the optical activity of other enantiomer has to be predicted.

Concept introduction: A chiral compound which rotates the plane of polarized light in a clockwise direction is said to be a dextrorotatory compound.  Similarly, if a chiral compound rotates the plane of polarized light in anticlockwise direction, it is known as a levorotatory compound.

Explanation

Reason for correct option:

If one member of an enantiomeric pair is a dextrorotatory compound then the other enantiomer must be a levorotatory compound.  Hence, the correct option is (a).

Reason for incorrect options:

In an enantiomeric pair, the (+)- enantiomer ro
