As the distance between an object and the center of the Earth is increased

1)the object's mass decreases and its weight remains the same.
2)both the object's mass and its weight remain the same
3)both the object's mass and its weight decreases.
4)the object's mass remains the same and its weight decreases.

I chose number 2. Is this correct?
