The economic downturn has made the world more violent and unstable in the last year, according to a study. The impact of high food and fuel prices in early 2008 and the deepening recession later in the year eroded peace, according to the Global Peace Index, compiled by a unit of The Economist magazine group. Economic weakening has increased political instability, demonstrations and crime in some countries, according to the study. "Rapidly rising unemployment, pay freezes and falls in the value of house prices, savings and pensions is causing popular resentment in many countries, with political repercussions," the report says.

Which of the following, if true, would seriously challenge the conclusion of the study?
OPTIONS
 
 1)The study ranked the countries on 23 indicators including political stability, warfare, human rights, murder rates, military spending, and international relations.
 2)Peace is a leading indicator on economic prosperity.
 3)Iceland, the most peaceful nation last year, fell to fourth place after violent protests over its economic meltdown.
 4)New Zealand at the head of the table improved its position because of the new coalition government with a strong parliamentary majority and its low homicide rate and defence spending.
 5)Afghanistan and Iraq, which are the bottom two of the list, were in the last year riddled by violent terrorist activities arising from anti-west sentiments and ideologies.
