Electrophilic add

Answer :

The electron density from the pi bond attracts proton(H+). This H+ can substituted at either of the carbons with the pi bond. But we observe that the H+ gets substituted at the terminal carbon(less substituted carbon) exclusively to give a more stable secondary carbocation. This preference to form more stable carbocation is called Markownikoff’s rule.
