Hi, can anyone help me with why my answer to 1.3 is incorrect and why we need to write out the full structure. Also how do we know that the free radical goes onto that specific carbon atom? Thanks in advance.

The question tells you that it's 2-chlorobutane. You need to show the free radical electron on the second carbon.

This.
But also, radicals always prefer to form on more substituted carbons. A bit like carbocation stability.
