I want to ask if ring expansion can happen two times in this reaction so that chlorohexane is also a product.It was not given in the answers.In the solution the ring expansion happened only once,but as chlorohexane will be more stable due to steric reasons I think it should be one of the products even if not the major one.

carbocation can rearrange more than two but every time by 1-2 shift only and every time to give more stable cation than the previous one. So may be carbocation in cyclohexane have less number of alpha hydrogen then the previous cation so no rearrangement further.
