Stereospecificity of Addition Reactions

The following questions concern reactions of trans-3-hexene.

In the drawing window on the left, draw a structural formula for the expected product in each case. Indicate the configuration of the major stereoisomer by using the wedge/hatched bond tool. Do not draw hydrogen atoms. When you are finished, check your answer by pressing the Check Product # button under each question.
