We’re being asked to draw the mechanism for the given E1 reaction.



Recall that the E1 reaction occurs in two steps:

(1) carbocation formation – the carbon-leaving group bond is broken

(2) elimination – the base removes a β-hydrogen, forming a double bond.


Since a carbocation is formed during the reaction, the carbocation may rearrange into a more stable one.
