Answer

Condensation is a phase change from a gas to a liquid that is an exothermic process. Evaporation is a phase change from a liquid to a gas that is an endothermic process. This is an exothermic process because heat flows from the alcohol and into the surroundings. This is an endothermic process because heat flows from the surroundings into the potato.
