Try this out:
1. Open Chrome browser on your mobile
2. Go to Sign in on Chrome
3. There will be several options; choose the email whose password you've forgotten.
4. Click on that account and you'll automatically be signed in on Chrome on that account.
5. Now type in myaccount.google.com on this mobile Chrome browser
6. Go to - Sign in and security
7. Choose account recovery options
8. Enter your mobile number and be sure to do verification by a one-time password
9. Now sign out
10. Now again type gmail.com in the browser and follow the Forgot Password options to recover your password using your mobile number.
Hope this helps

They can't, because you will get the code on the phone number that you have connected to your account, and that is your phone number.

Google used to have a form you could submit asking last few passwords, what services you have signed up for and when you left used them, etc.
Assuming you want that route already? However, I thought it took 5-7 days for them to review those forms?
Either way id go on the OFFICIAL Google Help Forums. Or take a drive to Mountain View?

hey!
every time i log in, it requires me to provide phone number and security code, how to avoid this.

Close two-step verification from your account settings.

Wrong. Google won't give any forgotten passwords, only reset new ones
