The genetic code consists of synonymous codons and isoaccepting tRNAs, but there far fewer than 61 different tRNA molecules to recognize all 61 functional codons. How is "third-base wobble" involved in this redundancy of the genetic code?

There is flexible base pairing at any one nucleotide position of a codon involving purines.

  

There is flexible base pairing at the 5’ nucleotide of a codon involving a purine plus pyrimidine.

  

There is flexible base pairing at the middle nucleotide of a codon involving a purine plus pyrimidine.

  

There is flexible base pairing at the 3’ nucleotide of a codon involving a purine plus pyrimidine.
