The kinetic energies of a planet in an elliptical orbit around the Sun, at positions \(A,B~\text{and}~C\) are \(K_A, K_B~\text{and}~K_C\) respectively. \(AC\) is the major axis and \(SB\) is perpendicular to \(AC\) at the position of the Sun \(S\), as shown in the figure. Then:

1. | \(K_A <K_B< K_C\) | 2. | \(K_A >K_B> K_C\) |

3. | \(K_B <K_A< K_C\) | 4. | \(K_B >K_A> K_C\) |
