Consider any array representation of an $n$ element binary heap where the elements are stored from index $1$ to index $n$ of the array. For the element stored at index $i$ of the array $(i \leq n)$, the index of the parent is

1. $i-1$
2. $\lfloor \frac{i}{2} \rfloor$
3. $\lceil \frac{i}{2} \rceil$
4. $\frac{(i+1)}{2}$
