HintTo solve this question, we must first understand the whole conversion of Ethanol into Methanol. Then we need to observe the reagents used in the reaction and then only we can have our correct answer.

Step 1: Firstly we will oxidise Ethanol into ethanoic acid by using ${K_2}C{r_2}{O_7}/{H_2}S{O_4}$ .
Step 3: when chlorine is passed through methane forms methyl chloride. In presence of $aq.\,KOH$methanol is produced.
${C_2}{H_5}OH\xrightarrow[{{K_2}C{r_2}{O_7}/{H_2}S{O_4}}]{{[O]}}\,C{H_3}CHO\xrightarrow[{{K_2}C{r_2}{O_7}/{H_2}S{O_4}}]{{[O]}}C{H_3}COOH\,\xrightarrow[\Delta ]{{NaOH + CaO}}C{H_4}\xrightarrow{{C{l_2}}}C{H_3}Cl\xrightarrow[{ - KCl}]{{aq.\,KOH}}C{H_3}OH$
