At first you need to know what happens when the first 2 products are heated, only then you can know what gasses pass trough the NaOH solution.
And that is: The weak and hydrated oxalic acid gets dehydrated& decomposed:
(COOH)2. 2H2O + conc. H2SO4 + heat→ CO(gas) + CO2(gas) + [H2SO4.3H2O]
 
Hence glycolic acis is formed
