1. find the longest carbon chain
2. 1st priority goes to halogens when numbering carbons, and then it goes to methyl groups

alkyl side chains and halogens don’t hold any priority over one another so it’s alphabetical

so even if there are more methyl groups than halogens, we name the halogen first, hence it is C?
