CH3OH + 2CuO Which reaction is true?


Which reaction is true? Or maybe both?
CH3OH + 2CuO = HCOOH + 2 Cu + H2O
CH3OH + 2CuO = HCHO + Cu2O + H2O
How to explain this since the ratio of substrates in both reactions is the same. Question

Neither nor.

CH3OH + CuO => HCHO + H2O + Cu first step

HCHO + CuO => HCOOH + Cu second step
