$(\overrightarrow{a}\times\overrightarrow{b})\times(\overrightarrow{c}\times\overrightarrow{d}) = [\overrightarrow{a} \; \overrightarrow{b} \; \overrightarrow{d} ] \overrightarrow{c} - [ \overrightarrow{a} \overrightarrow{b} \overrightarrow{c}] \overrightarrow{d}$ -----(1)
$(\overrightarrow{a}\times\overrightarrow{b})\times(\overrightarrow{c}\times\overrightarrow{d}) = [\overrightarrow{c} \; \overrightarrow{d} \; \overrightarrow{a} ] \overrightarrow{b} - [ \overrightarrow{c} \overrightarrow{b} \overrightarrow{d}] \overrightarrow{a}$-----(2)
Equation (1) => vector $(\overrightarrow{a}\times\overrightarrow{b})\times(\overrightarrow{c}\times\overrightarrow{d}) $
lies on the plane containing $\overrightarrow{c}$ and $\overrightarrow{d}$
Equation (1) => vector $(\overrightarrow{a}\times\overrightarrow{b})\times(\overrightarrow{c}\times\overrightarrow{d}) $
lies on the plane containing $\overrightarrow{a}$ and $\overrightarrow{b}$
$\therefore (\overrightarrow{a}\times\overrightarrow{b})\times(\overrightarrow{c}\times\overrightarrow{d}) $ is a vector parallel to the lie of intersection of the plane containing the vectors $\overrightarrow{a}$ and $\overrightarrow{b}$ and the plane containing the vectors $\overrightarrow{a}$ a$\therefore (\overrightarrow{a}\times\overrightarrow{b})\times(\overrightarrow{c}\times\overrightarrow{d}) $ is a vector parallel to the lie of intersection of the plane containing the vectors $\overrightarrow{a}$ and $\overrightarrow{b}$ and the plane containing the vectors $\overrightarrow{a}$ ad $\overrightarrow{b}$ and the plane containing the vectors $\overrightarrow{c}$ and $\overrightarrow{d}$d $\overrightarrow{b}$ and the plane containing the vectors $\overrightarrow{c}$ and $\overrightarrow{d}$
hence 3 is the correct answer
