Grignard Reagent and Arbonyl Compounds

I am having trouble drawing the Grignard reagent and carbonyl compound when synthesizing alcohols using a Grignard reagent and an aldehyde or keytone. It seems the the actual reagent is more complicated in structure because it is complexed with several molecules of ether. I just need a little clarity on this one.

How would you synthesize the following alcohols using a Grignard reagent and an aldehyde or keytone? Clearly show the structure of the Grignard reagent and the carbonyl compound (see short attachment).
