Correct Option is 1 and 2

Union Public Service Commission (UPSC) is the central recruiting agency in India. It is an independent constitutional body as it has been directly created by the Constitution. Articles 315 to 323 in Part XIV of the Constitution contain provisions regarding the composition, appointment, and removal of members along with its independence, powers, and functions. Hence statements 1 and 2 are incorrect and statement 3 is correct. The UPSC consists of a chairman and other members appointed by the president of India. The Constitution has not specified the strength of the Commission has left the matter to the discretion of the president, who determines its composition. The chairman and members of the Commission hold office for a term of six years or until the age of 65 years. They can address their resignation to the president.
