$W,X$ and $Y$ are the intermediates in a biochemical pathway as shown below:

$$S \cdots \cdots \rightarrow W\rightarrow X\rightarrow Y\rightarrow Z$$

Mutants auxotrophic for $Z$ are found in four different complementation groups, namely $Z1$, $Z2$, $Z3$ and $Z4$. The growth of these mutants on media supplemented with $W$, $X$, $Y$ or $Z$ is shown below (Yes: growth observed ; No: growth not observed):

 

Mutants  Media supplemented with
   W   X      Y    Z
  Z1  No  No  Yes  Yes
  Z2  No  Yes  Yes  Yes
  Z3  No  No  No  Yes
  Z4  Yes  Yes  Yes  Yes

 

What is the order of the four complementation groups in terms of the step they block?

  1. $S \cdots \cdots \overset{Z1}{\rightarrow}W\overset{Z2}{\rightarrow}X\overset{Z3}{\rightarrow} Y\overset{Z4}{\rightarrow}Z$
  2. $S \cdots \cdots \overset{Z4}{\rightarrow}W\overset{Z2}{\rightarrow}X\overset{Z1}{\rightarrow} Y\overset{Z3}{\rightarrow}Z$
  3. $S \cdots \cdots \overset{Z3}{\rightarrow}W\overset{Z1}{\rightarrow}X\overset{Z2}{\rightarrow} Y\overset{Z4}{\rightarrow}Z$
  4. $S \cdots \cdots \overset{Z4}{\rightarrow}W\overset{Z1}{\rightarrow}X\overset{Z2}{\rightarrow} Y\overset{Z3}{\rightarrow}Z$

To facilitate mass transfer from a gas to a liquid phase, a gas bubble of radius $r$ is introduced into the liquid. The gas bubble then breaks into $8$ bubbles of equal radius. Upon this change, the ratio of the interfacial surface area to the gas phase volume for the system changes from $3/r$ to $3n/r$. The value of $n$ is _____________________.
