when checking chirality for a tetrahedral, let's take carbon as an example, will two enantiomers or diastereomes of a group attached to same carbon cause chirality at that carbon, I mean are they considered different for comparing valencies and what about r/s naming , will cis trans , which enantiomer (supposing one chirality centre each) have more priority in cip?

Dear student
Enantiomer (optical isomer): Stereoisomers that are nonsuperposable mirror images.
Diastereomer: One of a set of stereoisomers that are not enantiomers.
1.) Multiple stereocenters.
2.) Impossible for one stereocenter to be superposable on its mirror image

read question again, two enantiomers of same group attached to carbon cause chirality on that carbon or not?
