Out of a given set of compounds, I was asked to identify which would produce Hydrogenhydrogen gas on reaction with Na/K. One of the given compounds was:

Compound

I could not detect any acidic hydrogen in it, so concluded that it won't produce Hydrogenhydrogen. But the answer says the opposite.

So my questions are:

1) Why does the above compound produce hydrogen gas?

2) What can be the general set of rules to decide which hydrogen shall be acidic enough so that hydrogen gas is produced on reaction with an alkali metal?
