2 was a transfer to clubs and alerted by South (3 was no super accept). North had misbid with 2 (should have bid 2NT as a transfer to diamonds over which 3 would have been a super accept).

To further clarify: over 2 showing clubs 2NT would have been a super accept, over 2NT showing diamonds 3 would have been a super accept. Super accept being the kind of hand that would (at least) accept a natural invitational 1NT-3/3 to 3NT or 5m. After a transfer to a minor NS play a new suit above the minor as natural forcing.

 

South explained that 2 showed clubs when asked straight after the alert.

 

If the alert woke N up that they had misbid how should they have bid their hand?

If N realised that they had misbid of their own accord (ie before the alert) what, if anything, should they do?
