Question

2-hexanol undergoes a condensation reaction w/ acid catalyst

Draw the structures and write the IUPAC names of the two alkenes formed when 2-hexanol undergoes a condenstation reaction in the presence of an acid catalyst.

I am confused because 2-hexanol is only one substance and I think I need two to complete the reaction. Unless it is reacting with itself, but it doesn't state that inthe question. Help?
