Lungs Lung condition of stillbirth baby

This is not from a USMLE text book - I took it from another diagnosis test.

A baby was autopsied to find out if the baby was born dead or alive. Which of the following results prove that the baby was born dead and not alive?

1. dissected lung(s) sinks in water
2. dissected lung(s) floats in water
3. lungs collapsed
4. lungs inflated with fluid
5. discoloration of the lungs
