Expert Answer:

Markovnikov's rule:
It predicts addition of HX regioselectively to unsymmetrically substituted alkene where X is a halide ion.
According to this rule, halide ion gets added to highly substituted double bonded carbon atom of the alkene.
Antimarkovnikov's rule:
According to this rule the addition of HX is exactly opposite to that of Markovnikov's rule.
As per this rule, the halide ion gets added to the less substituted doubly bonded carbon atom.
