I think there are four optical isomers for 2,3 - dibromobutane.
The structure is :
CH₃ - *CHBr - *CHBr - CH₃

As we can see, there are two asymmetrical carbon atoms(denoted with ' * ' ).

Every asymmetrical carbon atom exhibits one leavo and one dextro rotatory isomerisms.

As there are two asymmetrical carbon atoms, there are a total of four optical isomers for 2,3 - dibromobutane
