Answer :

1-phenylethanol from a suitable alkene.


The addition of water takes place according to Markovnikov rule. The alkene taken is styrene. And According to the rule, the positive charge i.e. H+ goes to the carbon of the double bond which has more number of hydrogens and the negative part i.e. OH- goes to the carbon that has less number of hydrogens. Therefore resulting the final product as 1-phenyl ethanol.
