This is because the ketone group present at the bottom is less hindered and so will first react with diol and diol will thus act as a protecting group. When liAlh4 is added only hindered ketone will be available for reaction , so it will reduce it to an alcohol. And when h+ is added finally the diol get removed and ketone is formed again. So ans is 1.
