Total correct statements is 6:
M and N are enantiomers because cis alkene on anti addition gives racemic mixture. Q and R are identical meso because cis (symmetrical) alkene on syn addition gives meso compound only. O and P are identical meso because trans (symmetrical) alkene on anti addition gives meso. S and T are enantiomers because trans alkene on syn addition gives racemic mixture. Enantiomers have identical physical properties so they can’t be separated by physical methods like distillation. Meso isomer is diastereomer of d or l, isomers and have different properties so they can be separated by physical methods. Correct statements are 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8.
