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)
Determine the product(s) formed when cyclohexene is treated with the following reagents.
