How to define to track a file as binary and to track the same in LFS using .gitattributes file?

Hi, i have the below entries in .gitattributes file


*.exe binary
*.exe filter=lfs diff=lfs merge=lfs -text

What I am trying to achieve is, I wat to treat .exe as binar to skip it from merge difference, and to track it using LFS. I have two questions;

1. is it possible to represent the two lines as single line "*.exe binary filter=lfs diff=lfs merge=lfs -text"

2. Should I explicitly set it as binary n gitattributes file? or is the second line alone just enough?
