e) 8) A) b)


Hey!!
In this question I was asked to determine the major product of this reaction. under the following conditions: * bulky base
* H-I
I do believe that this reaction will follow Hoffmann rule, that is the hydrogen will be attracted to the highest substituted carbon. Thus, the double bond should be broken into a single bond. What about iodine, doesn't it have to be in the major product as well?
My instructor's answer states that the answer is B. please help.
