    Five.
    The two CH2 groups are different, the two OH groups are very different, the two CH3 groups are the same.

    Which did you think were the same?

    My guess is the two CH2 groups - one of them is next to a COOH, the other next to a R-C=O

    I like to personify.

    Imagine the C on the left is a house with three H atoms living it in. An H living in that house looks out his front door and down his street. Next door to him, there is another house with two H atoms, next door but one is another house with two H atoms and so on (they have very good eyesight and can see all the way to the other end of the street.

    Now, can anyone else tell the same story?

    If two people (in different houses) have the same neighbours and next-door neighbours and so on, then they will be in the same environment.
