Current does not flow in loop 2.

Work Step by Step

When $I_1$ is constant, there is a magnetic field directed toward the left. However, since the magnetic field is constant, the magnetic flux through loop 2 is not changing. According to Faraday's law, there is no induced current when there is no change in the magnetic flux. Current does not flow in loop 2.
