When a man spinning changes his position of body by spreading arms or curling up his angular momentum does not change as there is no external torque, by conservation of angular momentum. But his moment of inertia, angular velocity changes.

Since I" role="presentation" style="position: relative;">III changes his rotational kinetic energy also change.
1, 3 and 4 are correct.
Hence (b) option is correct.
