Assuming they mean beta (-) decay, what do you think with the info at that link?

too low to be stable?

An excess of neutrons in an atom's nucleus will make it unstable, and a neutron is converted into a proton to change this ratio. During this process, a ß particle is released, and it has the same mass and charge as an electron.

So the third one?

No, when there are an excess of neutrons, that makes the neutron to proton ratio high.
