Correct option is C) 4,0,4

explaination :

Number of enantiomer = 2n (n is the number of chiral carbon )

Number of meso isomer = 0

Total number of optical isomer= 2n + 0

Solving

Chiral carbon, n= 2

So Number of enantiomer = 2n = 22 = 4

Number of meso isomer = 0

Total number of optical isomer= 2n + 0 = 4+0= 4
