 Iodine monochloride adds more readily than iodine to carbon-carbon double
bonds
why

The reaction between iodine and double-bonds is reversible, no?

I don't know, but the actual question is asking for an explanation in terms of electrophilic addition.

The answer is to do with how ICl is polar

That's what I don't get. How is that supposed to affect anything
