# Which one of the following sets correctly represent the increase in the paramagnetic property of the ions?

$\begin {array} {1 1} (1)\;Cu^{2+} < V^{2+} < Cr^{2+} < Mn^{2+} & \quad (2)\;Cu^{2+} < Cr^{2+} < V^{2+} < Mn^{2+} \\ (3)\;Cu^{2+} < V^{2+} < Cr^{2+} < Mn^{2+} & \quad (4)\;V^{2+} < Cu^{2+} < Cr^{2+} < Mn^{2+} \end {array}$

$(3)\;Cu^{2+} &lt; V^{2+} &lt; Cr^{2+} &lt; Mn^{2+}$
