5.21 understand that condensation polymerisation produces a small molecule, such as water, as well as the polymer

Two monomers come together by loosing a molecule. Atoms from each monomer join together to make the molecule: commonly a H atom from one and a OH molecule from another form water. The two monomers then join together, making a polymer.
