Could someone please help with this? The hint on the homework says it would be an addition reaction followed by elimination.

Hi Amanda! First is addition reaction using H-X (HBr in this case) following the Markovnikov's rule. Second reaction will be E2 Zaitsev using a base. In the choices, we can use ethoxide (CH3CH2O-). I drew the steps and the corresponding product of each reaction. Hope that helps! `enter image description here
