L-Idose (configuration, chirality and stereocenters)?

  1. Jul 1, 2017 #1
    I'm struggling with the following problem:
    1. Draw (using Haworth notation) the L-Idose
    2. Is it chiral?
    3. Nominate every functional group
    4. Mark every stereocenter
    Now, I tried doing the following, but I'm quite frankly confused: which one Idose is the correct (meaning the true L-) one?
