Concept

Problem: Draw the structure of the expected major organic product if this compound was to undergo monobromination with Br2/FeBr3. You do not have to consider stereochemistry. You do not have to explicitly draw H atoms. Do not include lone pairs in your answer. They will not be considered in the grading. In cases where there is more than one answer, just draw one. Do not draw organic or inorganic by-products.
