The H-Zone in the skeletal muscle fibre is due to 

(1) the central gap between actin filaments extending through myosin filaments in the A-band

(2) extension of myosin filaments in the central portion of the A-band

(3) the absence of myofibrils in the central portion of A-band

(4) the central gap between myosin filaments in the A-band
