ans is 3. it depends only on intensity of the light, it doesn't depend upon frequency of light. increase in frequency will increase energy of the photon. that will not affect the current because photon and electron does one to one interactions, so no. of emitted electron will not change so no change in flowing charge, that implies no change in current. but increase in intensity will increase no. of photons so more electrons will be emitted. Hence increase in photo current.
