Doubt from aldol and cannizaro

given ans is A but I am getting C

If you produce carbanion at the middle most C then there will be cross conjugation due to OEt and hence it is lesser favoured than carbanion in the left most C

According to what I think Carboanion in middle is more stable due to cross conjugation with keto and ester group while the carboanion in left is only in conjugation with keto group .

now, my doubt is carboanion in middle is most stable(has most acidic h) wheres carboanion is left has greater charge density.which one of this carboanion I must chose for my reaction and why?
