Which among the following is incorrect with respect to microsporogenesis? 

(1) The cells of the sporogenous tissue undergo mitotic divisions to form microspore tetrads.

(2) Each cell of the sporogenous tissue is capable of giving rise to a microspore tetrad. Each one is a potential pollen or microspore mother cell (PMC).

(3) The microspores are arranged in a cluster of four cells called as the microspore tetrad.

(4) Inside each microsporangium several thousands of microspores or pollen grains are formed that are released with the dehiscence of anther.
