$ROH + CH_3 MgBr \longrightarrow CH_4 +BrMgOR$
$22400 mL$ of $CH_4$ produced at $STP=1\;mol \;of\;ROH$
$1.2\;mL$ of $CH_4$ produced at $STP=\large\frac{1.12}{22400}$$= 5 \times 10^{-5}\;mol$
Now molecular mass of $ROH= \large\frac{4.12 \times 10^{-3}}{5 \times 10^{-5}}$
$\therefore $ mol mass of $ROH=82.4$
Hence c is the correct answer.
