Q. In the presence of peroxide, HC and HI do not give anti-Markownikoff s addition to alkenes because

(1) All the steps are exothermic in HCl and HI

(2) One of the steps is endothermic in HCl and HI

(3) HCl is oxidizing and the HI is reducing

(4) Both HCl and HI are strong acids

[Jee-Main offline 2014]

Sol. (2)

relectivity ratio for bromination is

$1^{\circ}: 2^{\circ}: 3^{\circ}: 1: 82: 1600$

Hence $3^{\circ}$ product will be major product.
