QUESTION

# In racemic mixture, why are both enantiomers of compound present in equal amounts?

Because that is what we mean by "racemate".

By definition, a racemic mixture, a racemate, contains equal quantities of left handed and right handed . Stereoselective syntheses aim to produce more of 1 antipode than the other.
