15.85 6th Edition

Question 15.85 asks us to draw a proposed structure for the activated complex of each chemical reaction given. Will we be required to know how to draw these structures for the final?

This was posted earlier this week: "An activated complex is the the structure that occurs when the molecule is at the highest energy along the reaction path (ie the transition state at the top of that curve at Ea). You will not be asked to draw the structure on the exam."
