both of them contain hydrogen bond in their enol form , then why 2 has more enol content than 1

Expert Answer:

In (1), Number of alpha hydrogen=5
In (2), Number of alpha hydrogen=8
When alpha hydrogen are present in more quantity than more number of enol forms will be formed. So second structure has more enol content than first structure.
