    I believe is D.
    D is a Z isomer whilst A, B,C is a E isomer

    i agree i think it's D because it's a z-isomer

    Yes it is D indeed but how can you tell so quickly? I was very confused by this and didn't know what to look for. Thanks.

    Oh yes, I can see it now. But I am slightly confused about the structure. I didn't know if you could have CClH2 on one side. Normally it is just CH3. So CClH2 can also be a group? Thanks.

    I just looked at each one and from the way all of the isomer were drawn I could tell it was about geometrical isomerism. Then I looked at each one. D was the only one that had Cl and CH2Cl on the same side, thus that one must have been the answear.

    Yeah C can have up to 4 bonds. It could've also been CCl3 or ChCl2
