Step 1

The structures in which the connectivity of molecules is same bit electrons are free to move from one position to different are known as resonance structures. 

In other words delocalisation of pi electrons in a conjugated system giving rise to different hybrid structures is termed as resonance.

Step 2

In anisole the methoxy group is an ortho-para directing group. So, when an electrophile that is electron deficient species attack on it ortho and para substituted products are the major product.

The resonance structure for attack of an electrophile at ortho position is shown as follows:
