During elimination of alcohols using conc,sulphuric acid it produces an alkene. By dehydrating an unsymmetrical alcohol you can have two products. I just can't shake the feeling that in AS exams you needed to know which one of the two was most likely to occur. I'm not sure if it was a different reaction or just imagining things , but if it is this reaction can someone tell me which one would be most likely to occur and why? Thank you
