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.
