Questions about expat tax filing

1.An expat who is senior citizen and US citizen ..wants to file tax return. She has interest income as well as capital gains ..both are passive income.

2. She in residing in India and tax year in India is April 20 to March 21 but in USA its Jan to Dec. so she has figure out her income between jan to dec 20? if so what is the best way to do it ? Statement she received from Indian banks or brokers are always showing income between April 1st 2020 to March 31st 2021.

3. When I try to enter income under federal tab - it asks me to enter 1099-INT and 1099-B - but Indian banks or brokers don't provide such forms ..they give you end of financial year (april to march) statements but it does not mention like their EIN number or anything how and where do I enter Indian interest income and capital gains?

4. She had about 8 different accounts with 8 different banks and 2 different brokerage accounts

When we enter interest income - do we enter 8 different entries for each bank or we can just combined all interest income and in the name of the payer - we can write blanket for all banks like 'Various Indian banks'? it will be too tedious to write each bank detail individually. Same question for 2 different broker accounts. I don't think IRS want to know names of each banks and brokers ..correct me if am wrong?

5. Her approximate foreign tax to be paid is about $1500 - because she had all passive income she does not qualify for Foreign income exclusion so tax credit is the only option. Her total gross income is slightly above standard deduction of $14050 (senior citizen)
