$1^{st}$ statement should be - A $\underline{prune}$ is a dried plum.

$2^{nd}$ statement - He was lying  $\underline{prone}$  on the floor.

                                    means He was lying on the floor in a prone position.

prone position is a position of the body lying face down

$3^{rd}$ statement - People who eat a lot of fat are $\underline{prone}$ to heart disease.

Here prone means likely or liable to suffer from

 

∴ The answer will be D) ii) & iii) only
