FREE Expert Solution

Inspecting each addition reaction:

Alkene + H2SO4/H2O → Hydration (formation of alcohol; follows Markovnikov's rule)

Alkene + Br2/H2O → Halohydrin formation (formation of alcohol + alkyl halide; follows Markovnikov's rule for -OH; anti- addition)

Alkene + HBr→ Hydrohalogenation (formation of alkyl halide; follows Markovnikov's rule)
