How many structural isomers of dicloro,hydroxy,butanoic acid are there?

Is there a website that has the structure with names???


The point of this question is to get you to draw the compound, then move the cloro and hydroxyls and count the variations.

So draw the butanoic acid, add the chloro and hydroxyl, and count.
