The two multi peaks are cyclopropyl group signal which is shown at the range of 1.
Generally, the average bond lengths and bond angles of the 1,2,4-triazole ring, phenyl ring, cyclopropyl ring are normal ranges[33-38].
Also, it is nearly that the phenyl ring is vertical with cyclopropyl ring with the dihedral angle of 58.
