What do You play when you lead a king, which holds the trick as dummy hits with a singleton at a suit contract?
Suit preference with a middling card suggesting continuing the suit led.

And the alternative to 2NT is ? Balanced hand, positional values in the unbid suits, just under half the deck, <4 hearts.
