The remarkable remains of two ancient human-like creatures (hominids) have been found in South Africa. The fossils of a female adult and a juvenile male - perhaps mother and son - are just under two million years old. They were uncovered in cave deposits at Malapa not far from Johannesburg. Researchers tell the journal Science that the creatures fill an important gap between older hominids and the group of more modern species known as Homo, which includes our own kind. "It's at the point where we transition from an ape that walks on two legs to, effectively, us," lead scientist Professor Lee Berger of the University of the Witwatersrand told BBC News.

Which of the following, if true, would most seriously weaken the conclusion of the study that the new specimens are at the point of transition from ‘an ape to us’?
OPTIONS
 
 1)The period just under two million years ago is the most poorly represented period in the entire early hominid fossil record.
 2)Some scientists believe that the Malapa fossils are of Homos themselves.
 3)The Malapa fossils were unearthed in one of the remotest sites which had never yielded any important fossils.
 4)No fossil of the Homo so far discovered is dated to be two (or more) million years old.
 5)There are some fossils of Homo from East Africa which are much older than two million years.
