Solution

The correct options are
A (CH3)3C

In homolytic bond cleavage, the bonded atoms get one electron each of the shared pair in a covalent bond.
A species with an unpaired electron in its valence shell is called a free radical. Here, the products formed are bromine free radical and tert-butyl free radical.
