A

II, because it is a staggered conformation and has a higher energy

B

II, because it is an eclipsed conformation and has a lower energy

C

I, because it is a staggered conformation and has a lower energy

D

I, because it is an eclipsed conformation and has a lower energy

E

II, because it is an eclipsed conformation and has a higher energy
