With reference to factors affecting the rate of photosynthesis, which of the following statements is not correct?

(1) Light saturation for CO2-fixation occurs at 10% of full sunlight.

(2) Increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration upto 0.05% can enhance the CO2-fixation rate

(3) C3 plants respond to higher temperature with enhanced photosynthesis, while C4 plants have a much lower temperature optimum.

(4) Tomato is a greenhouse crop, which can be grown in a CO2-enriched atmosphere for higher yield.

Water vapour comes out from the plant leaf through the stomatal opening. Through the same stomatal opening carbon dioxide diffuses into the plant during photosynthesis. Reason out the above statements using the following options. 

1. Both process can happen together because the diffusion coefficient of water and CO2 is different. 

2. The above processes happen only during night time

3. One process occurs during the day time and the other night

4. Both processes cannot happen simultaneously
