Graded Homework Problem #04 – Answer Key Deadline : 3:00 p.m., Monday, 9/17/07 LATE WORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED OR GRADED!!! This problem is worth a total of 20 raw points. The molecule shown below is pravastatin, which is an HMg-CoA reductase inhibitor that is widely prescribed to lower LDL cholesterol levels in people who suffer from high cholesterol. Sales of this medication reached $429.2 million during 2006. In the line–angle structure given below, no lone pairs are shown explicitly. All atoms in pravastatin have a formal charge of zero, however. Arrows marked with letters point to various parts of the structure. These letters correspond to the questions to the right of the structure. Answer each of the questions, writing
