We are asked to draw curved arrows to the reactant side to show the mechanism of the acid-catalyzed hydration of 3-methyl-1-butene.
Recall: When drawing arrows, start from the region of high electron density.
Consider the acid-catalyzed hydration of 3-methyl-1-butene. For each of the four steps, add one or two curved arrows to the reactant side to show the mechanism.
