    I am not certain how one could prove the first and the last as true/untrue. The second and third are rather easy to prove/disprove.

    the answer is apparently number one, and I choose number three as being not falsifiable. I am currently arguing my point and could use some support. My proof that three of the four claims are falsifiable are as follows. My luck may improve or it may not. I could die immediately after you say the word improve. My house may sell or it may not, and smoking may cause heart diesease or it may not. Seem reasonable so far. Now, we are left with granite, which is clearly more dense than any sand on the face of the earth. What am I missing here. I certainly appreciate your input.
