    W/ E1 or SN1 you need a weak base, weak nuc respectively

    for ex. H20
    with 2 bromobutane... H2O can do E1 or SN1
    so how can we distinguish when E1 or when SN1 will happen?

    They won't give both answers within the same question since there's a possibility of getting both products. Unless, somewhere in the question hints at one of the mechanism!
