Expert Answer:

Dear student,
Options 3 and 4 are one and the same.
 
Heat absorbed, internal energy increases, and work is done on the system.
 
Work is another mode of transference of energy. Work is said to be done if the point of application of force undergoes displacement in the direction of the force. If the system loses energy, we say that the work is done by the system. Alternatively, if the system gains energy, we say that work is done on the system.
Hope this helps.
