1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Predict the product, along with the reaction mechanism,of the given reactants -:

$$Ph-Mg-X + tert-butyl alcohol \longrightarrow \ ?$$

My attempt
This is a grignard synthesis, RMgX where R is phenyl carbanion . The general reaction with water gives alkanes,and X-Mg-OH . Similarly the reaction with alcohol should give tertbutyl benzene and X-Mg-OH ??? But the given answer is benzene.
Could someone give an explanation as to how that is being formed ?
Any links to webpages explaining griganard reactions with alcohols will also be appreciated.
Thx

What is the product of a reaction between a grignard (strong base and sometimes alkylating agent) and an alcohol?

This statement is not correct:
