Every year since 1901 the Nobel Prize has been awarded for achievements in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature and for peace. The Nobel Prize is an international award administered by the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden. In 1968, Sveriges Riksbank established The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, founder of the Nobel Prize.

Even from the given options we can guess the answer.

1) Chemistry -In 1901 Jacobus Henricus van 't Hoff was awarded with Nobel prize. So the answer cannot be option (1).

2) Physics-In 1901 Roentgen was awarded with Nobel prize in physics for the discovery of X-rays. So the answer cannot be option (2).

4) Peace-In 1901 Henry Dunant, Frederic Passy were awarded with Nobel prize in Peace.

THUS WE CAN SAY THAT IF ALL THREE OPTIONS 1, 2, 4 ARE NOT CORRECT THEN OBVIOUSLY OPTION 3 (Economics) WILL BE THE CORRECT OPTION. THERE YOU GO WITH THE CORRECT ANSWER.
