Expert Answer:

Given example is of unsymmetrical ethers, in which smaller group is considered a part of the alkoxy group and the larger group being chosen as the parent alkane. Thus, in the IUPAC system, others are called as alkoxy alkanes:
in above example, 3-methyl butyl group is smaller hence consider as 3-methyl butoxy group and the phenyl ring is larger hence chosen as a parent alkane i.e., benzene
hence IUPAC name of the above compound will be 3-methyl butoxy benzene.
