Explanation

 

This question asks the examinee to determine the molecule that has a relative configuration different than the others. The best method to answer this question is to determine the absolute configuration of each molecule. Choices A, C, and D have an absolute configuration of S, while choice B has an absolute configuration of R. Thus, the molecules shown in A, C, and D are identical while the molecule shown in B is the enantiomer. Choice B is the correct answer.
