ive been doing a practice paper for a test tomorrow and this is the question that im confused on:
Explain why both cis and trans hex-3-ene react with Br2 to produce the same structural isomer.

and the mark scheme says this
(the product is saturated hence) there is no restricted rotation/single bonds allow rotation/because C=C prevents rotation

to me that contradicts its self saying theres no restricted movement then saying there is

could someone please explain this better???

There are no C=C double bonds in the product so there is no restricted rotation
