2) ???
Sir why the answer is 2.I also think the answer is 2 because  it require a kernel system call but in this it is not mention any system call. And kernel user thread is a light weight thread. So I think option 2 is false. Sir is it right

First of all, thanks for respect, but I am not Sir,

Secondly, consider you have built a software, when user run that software, then to make it more responsive, we use thread, know one of the thread will show "LOADING..." while some other threads working background and loading all required file to run the software.

In this the thread, which is showing "LOADING..." using the system call, and in that system call it is using IO device.

So, the statement,"user threads are light weight since they do not require system call" is false.

The question seems ambiguous. I think Answer is 2
