We're being asked to determine the major monobromination product of the given reaction.
Recall that alkanes are converted to alkyl halides via free radical halogenation:
Draw the major monobromination product when the following alkane is subjected to radical bromination at 25 °C. If there is more than one product, both may be drawn in the same box
