The question format seems odd, but I suspect that it is an SN2 reaction (as there could not be a tertiary cation intermediate, Br- is a good leaving group, and phenolate is a poor base, so that collectively rules out SN1, E1 and E2 reactions)
Hence, there will be an inversion of stereochemistry in the product.
