how many structural isomers are possible when one of the hydrogen is replaced by a chlorine atom in anthracene....????also show them....experts answer ASAP

Dear Stuudent,

In anthracene, there are 3 sets of equivalent positions(α, β, γ) , thus there are 3 different monochloroanthracenes :1-(same as 4-,5-,8-) , 2-(same as 3-,6-,7-) and 9-(same as 10-)chloroanthracene.
Hence, 3 structural isomers are possible.
