    find out this mystery/work out this mystery/discover this secret

    Which sentence is more natural:

    1) He decided to find out this mystery/secret.
    2) He decided to work out this mystery/secret.
    3) He decided to discover this mystery/secret.
    4) He decided to solve this mystery/secret.
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)
