    You must have some suspicions about which are incorrect then. Try to give at least some evidence that you've thought about it. For many of us here, that can make a difference in the quality of the answer you receive.

    I agree. I think 4 is also wrong. 3 is possible, but it's not the most likely interpretation of what the sentence is getting at.
