how can we choose a reaction that has gone markoniff rule or anti-markonic rule as there would be change in the direction of the species to attack

In case of Markovnikov's rule, the addition of halogen halides to alkenes is an electrophilic addition reaction.
Since a 20 carbocation(I) is more stable than 10 carbocation(II), therefore carbocation(I) is predominantly formed.
Markovnikov's addition occurs through the more stable carbocation intermediate.
Peroxide effect :
Peroxide effect is observed only with HBr and not with HF,HCl, or HI
