Products from Diels-Alder Cycloaddition Reactions

Draw the major product from each of the Diels-Alder reactions shown below. Do not indicate configurations of possible stereoisomers.
To draw a formula use the Drawing Window on the left below Do not draw hydrogen atoms. You must also count the number of new stereogenic centers (asymmetric centers) created in the reaction. Enter a number from 0 to 9 in the appropriate answer box. When you are finished, check your answer by pressing the Check Molecule # button. A help screen is available for the drawing window.

You have to enable Java and JavaScript on your machine !
