    The most stable conformation of trans-1-tert-butyl-4-methylcyclohexane is the one in which:
    A- the tert-butyl group is axial and the methyl group is equatorial
    B- the methyl group is axial and the tert-butyl group is equatorial
    C- both groups are axial
    D- both groups are equatorial
    E- the molecule is in the twist boat conformation
