Br wud be added to any one of the doubly bonded carbon atoms as it is a symmetrical alkene

As per markownikoff rule, "whenever there is an unsymmetrical reagent attacks an unsymmtrical alkene; then negative part of reagent goes to that part of an alkene which has least number of hydrogen atoms ".

Since here we have a symmetrical alkene ,so the ¶ bond can be shifted on any side.

Note : 1. In this problem, even peroxide does not brings any change in the product .

           2. But had it been an unsymmetrical alkene ,then the product would be different

                in presence of a peroxide (kharasch Effect).

           3. Peroxide effect fails in case of HCL and HI.
