Glycerol is an trihydric alcohol whose IUPAC name is propane-1, 2, 3-triol.It gives different oxidation products depending on the nature of oxidizing agent.With bismuth nitrate,it gives mailnly mesooxalic acid COOH-CO-COOH
Oxidation with bismuth nitrate--
(CH2OH)2CHOH -----------> (COOH)2CO
Thus option (2) will be the correct answer.
