You can use GChemPaint, which is available on the repositories of many popular distributions. Among its many components for drawing structures, it has a specific tool for Newman's projections. You can add H, O and many other elements by simply right-clicking on the molecule, and it even allows you to search your molecule in databases like PubChem and ...

The answer will be (a) Acyl chloride. The acyl carbon in an acyl chloride is connected to the chlorine atom. While you have acknowledged this fact, you have missed the point that the +M (resonance) effect of Chlorine is overcome by the -I (inductive) effect. Thus, the electrophilicity of the acyl carbon is actually greater than the electrophilicity of the ...

Let's address your concerns one at a time: The structure 1 you have drawn is chiral with $\ce{C4}$ having four different groups attached to it. $\ce{C4}$ has the (S)-configuration with the CIP priorities Cl>(Z)-propenyl>(E)-propenyl>H. The structure has an enantiomer of the (R)-configuration. Just switch any two groups: Cl, (Z)-propenyl, (E)-...
