I've labeled the chiral carbon with an asterisk. I've also drawn out all the groups it is attached to. I gave the hydrogen the lowest priority (4) and I'm giving the methyl carbon a priority of 3. I am giving the other carbons priorities of 1 and 2 (as can be seen in the picture). However, this doesn't seem to make any sense; I get a molecule that I can neither assign S nor R to since the numbers are out of order.
