How would you work this out, this type of organic compound isnt on specification so I assumed you're own knowledge would help.

My best guess was just an alcohol with two OH groups, but I have no idea how I was expected to come to MS answer.

Help appreciated.

The lone pair on the water attacks the delta + C, one of the O-H bonds breaks releasing an H+. The other H attached to the water stays attached.

Now, imagine that the other H (the one that stays attached) is a CH3 group, what would happen?

Well, OH with a CH3 attached IS methanol.
