Correct Option is 1, 2 and 3

Animals are physiologically and behaviourally adapted to desert conditions, like they are fast runners; they are nocturnal in habit to avoid the Sun’s heat during day time; they conserve water by excreting concentrated urine; animals and birds usually have long legs to keep the body away from the hot ground; lizards are mostly insectivorous and can live without drinking water for several days; herbivorous animals get sufficient water from the seeds which they eat; camel is known as “the ship of the desert” as it can travel long distances without drinking water for several days. Their wide, thick-soled feet enable them to walk on the hot sand; and distinctive thick eyebrows and long eyelashes protect their eyes from sand and the harsh rays of the Sun.
