You are using mass spectrometry to distinguish between the two isomers below, each with molecular mass equal to 184 g/mol.

Which of the mass peaks listed would you expect to uniquely identify one of the two isomers?

A

Large peak at m/z 184, with another peak at m/ 186. The peak at 184 is three times the intensity of the peak at 186.

B

Large peak at m/z 169, with a peak $\frac{1}{3}$ as large at 171.

C

Large peak at m/z 153, with a peak $\frac{1}{3}$ as large at 155.

D

Large peak at m/z 149.
