4.26 ochem textbook

In this question it asks to complete the reaction mechanism, and in the answer the Iodine is on the left carbon and the Hydrogen is on the right carbon, but can it be the other way around? (hydrogen on left carbon, iodine on right carbon)

Yes it could either one. The only time where you have to put the Iodine on the left or H on the right is when the question shows you the end result and it is like that.

Does the hydrogen have to bond first, or can the steps be written in a different order (i.e. with the Iodine bonding to the carbon structure first.

The Iodine has higher electronegativity so the H would usually bond first.
