When bromoethane reacts with magnesium in the presence of a non-polar solvent, a Grignard reagent is formed.

a. Give the equation for this Grignard reagent with water.

b. This Grignard reagent can also react with aldehydes and ketones to give an initial product which can then be hydrolysed by water to form an alcohol. State the names and formulas of the alcohols formed when the Grignard reagent reacts with:

i. ethanal
ii. propanone
