Hello Student,
Please find the answer to your question
(d) A mixture of equal amount of two enentiomers is called a racemic mixture. A racemic mixture does not rotate plane – polarized light. They are optically inactive because for every molecule in a racemic mixture that rotate plane of polarized light in one direction, there is a mirror image molecule that rotates the plane in opposite direction.

Thanks
