# What is the major product formed on addition of Hydrogen Iodide to Pent-2-ene?

Orginal question:

(1) One of the carbocations formed (CC on the right) is only slightly more stable than the other (both are 2°).

(2) Iodine ion ($\ce{I-}$) is a slightly bigger ion and it faces more steric hinderance while attaching to one of the carbocation (CC on the right).

These two factors are contradictory hence how do i compare them and arrive at a major product?
