Solution

Magnesium does not react with cold water.
 (i) However, it reacts with steam rapidly to form magnesium hydroxide and hydrogen gas.
       Mg(s) + H2O(g) →  Mg(OH)2(aq)  + H2(g)

(ii) Magnesium reacts very rapidly with steam to form magnesium oxide and hydrogen gas.
  Mg(s) + H2O(g) →  MgO(s)  +  H2(g)

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
