Answer:

Here's how I would do it.

Explanation:

The correct name for the compound is trans-1-chloro-3-isopropylcyclohexane.

Draw a structure for cyclohexane.

1

Put a wedge and a dash on each of #"C1"# and #"C3"#.

2

The two groups are trans to each other. Put the chlorine atom on a wedge at #"C1"# and the isopropyl group on a dash at #"C3"#.

3

Put #"H"# atoms on the remaining wedge and dash.

4

Now you have a perspective formula for trans-1-chloro-3-isopropylcyclohexane.
