I've been trying to figure out these NMR readings of an aldol (alpha beta unsaturated carbonyl compound), and I can't seem to get the structure.

I've been trying to figure out these NMR readings of an aldol (alpha beta unsaturated carbonyl compound), and I can't seem to get the structure. We also had to predict the starting materials (they have to be an aldehyde and a ketone)and I thought that they are cyclohexanone and either 2- or 3-chlorobenzaldehyde....

Here are the readings...

7.4 doublet 2H

7.2 doublet 2H

6.9 singlet 1H

2.6 singlet 3H

2.4 triplet 2H

1.2 - 2.1 multiplet 6H

I need to draw the aldol product also
