Answer:

In aqueous solution, cupric bromide tends to form cupric ions......

Explanation:

#CuBr_2(s) + "excess "H_2O(l)rarrCu^(2+)(aq) + 2Br^(-)(aq)#

#Cu^(2+)(aq)# is a coordination complex, which we could reasonably represent at #[Cu(OH_2)_6]^(2+)#; its salts have a quite beautiful blue colour.
