In the above mechanism why did CN didn't replace Br ? ..Which effects enhanced CN to follow the above mentioned mechanism ?

No idea never seen something like this


double bond character is two high hence it can replace br
br is +m group -i group but -i is dominating in case of br..
cn dont have any such effect the product is decideded acc to br..
