Best Answer for draw the major organic product of the following reaction.

Benzene undergoes electrophilic substitution reactions, these substitution reactions include:

1. Halogenation reaction

2. Friedel-Crafts reaction

3. Sulphonation reaction

4. Nitration reaction

In the reaction, the bromine atom already in the ring, directs the incoming electrophile towards the ortho and para positions in the ring, hence the products shown below.
