A radioactive nucleus \(_{\mathrm{Z}}^{\mathrm{A}}\mathrm{X}\) undergoes spontaneous decay in the sequence \(_{\mathrm{Z}}^{\mathrm{A}}\mathrm{X}\rightarrow \mathrm{B}_{\mathrm{Z-1}}\rightarrow \mathrm{C}_{\mathrm{Z-3}}\rightarrow \mathrm{D}_{\mathrm{Z-2}}\) where \(\mathrm{Z}\) is the atomic number of element \(\mathrm{X}\). The possible decay particles in the sequence are: 
1. \(\beta^{+}, ~\alpha, ~\beta^{-}\) 2. \(\beta^{-}, ~\alpha, ~\beta^{+}\)
3. \(\alpha, ~\beta^{-},~\beta^{+}\) 4. \(\alpha, ~\beta^{+},~\beta^{-}\)
