How would I answer this question:

"Analyse the effects of the monosubstituents -OH, -Cl, -NO2 and -CH3 on the benzene ring and predict how they direct an attacking species (such as NO2+, CH3+, Br2 and SO3) to either the 2, 3 or 4 positions on the ring during substitution. Include the names of substituted benzene compounds, indicating how the name is based upon the functional group(s) present and the different positions on the benzene ring."

I'm already stuck on what I'm supposed to research first

Look up "directing groups in aromatic compounds"
