Do you mean...

Why aren't they on the same carbon?

Why is it drawn in a particular way (one OH 'up' and the other 'down')?

Or something else?

Why are they in opposite formation on different carbons instead of like on the same side but on different carbons.

Ok so you mean why is it drawn like this: link

and not like this: link

If so, they are both correct ways of drawing them - but the first one is more common as it's drawn as a straight chain like butane is here.

It's probably been marked incorrectly, then (without seeing the exact question and markscheme I can't be certain).
