Thanks @Shaquib Sir. I have a minor doubt in 1 soln .
Does 2nd carbanion formed will attack on ketone? I am saying this because in aldol condensation attack of carbanion usually happens on aldehyde (because of steric factor)

Yeah you are absolutely right we prefer attack on aldehyde but in this question I think no of possible attack asking.
