Which of the following options is correct?

1. Pollination gives the guarantee of the promotion of post-pollination events that lead to fertilization
2. The events – “from pollen deposition on stigma until pollen tubes enter the ovule" are together referred to as pollen-pistil interaction
3. Pollen-pistil interaction is a dynamic process involving pollen recognition followed by only promotion (not rejection) of the pollen
4. Pistil has no ability to recognize the pollen, whether right or wrong type
