Under unfavorable conditions, the seeds go into dormancy. It is a plant adaptation that stops seeds from germinating. It promotes delayed germination in favorable conditions. Hence, option 2 is the correct answer. 

Diapause is a state in which many hibernating or estivating arthropods stop growing or reproducing. Diapause is distinct from dormancy.
The state or condition known as "seed dormancy" occurs when seeds are unable to germinate despite having ideal environmental conditions, such as the right temperature, water, light, and gas levels.

Many species, from butterflies to bats, can survive cold, dark winters by hibernating instead of looking for food or moving to a warmer region. Instead, in order to save energy, they lower their metabolisms.

Aestivation is the positioning of sepals and petals in respect to neighboring flower buds in a whorl.. It is frequently mistaken with vernation, which is the arrangement of scales and nascent leaves in a leaf bud before it opens. Sepals and petals are combined to form a perianth.
