All the Newman Projections we have done thus far have been a between TWO carbon atoms. The other carbon atoms are considered if they are bonded to the carbon atoms we are examining. They are drawn on the outside of the circle, whereas the carbon atoms being specifically analyzed are in the center of the circle.
The question will specify which 2 carbon atoms to draw in the Newman projection and then you draw the remaining chain depending what carbon it is bonded to. It is helpful to draw out the molecule before doing the Newman projection.
