    3 is always true.

    1 is conditionally true depending on the definition of evolution.

    In population genetics evolution is defined as a change in allele frequency in a population over time but outside that field this would be regarded as microevolution.

    In fact a change in allele frequencies does not create new alleles but it can result in the loss of alleles, so it is devolution rather than evolution.
