Explanation:-

Phenylcyclohexanone on addition with 1-ethylprop-2-en-one gives the following product.

+

(phenylcyclohexanone)                 (1-ethylprop-2-enone)      

Step 1

Mechanism:-

The 1st step of the mechanism involves generation of the nucleophile. Here the H-atoms present (-position) on the cyclohexanone  are more acidic because the anions can be stabilized by benzene ring.
