TBR Ochem Section IV (Hydrocarbon Reactions) Passage I #6.

The question is about the monochlorination of n-hexane.

In the answer key, it says that "the inductive effect would favor the formation of 3-cholropentane" (I think TBR means "3-cholroHEXANE" but I could be wrong).

Can someone explain how inductive effect is being applied to this scenario?
