Wilson et al. used mtDNA to analyze genetic diversity in modern humans. What did their results suggest?

The recent African origin model (RAO) was correct and modern humans evolved from a small African population that migrated out of Africa.

The recent African origin model (RAO) was correct and it predicts uniform genetic diversity among populations from most of the world.

The MRE model was correct and it predicted that Africans are genetically more diverse than humans from other continents.

The multiregional evolution model (MRE) was correct, and humans emerged gradually and simultaneously on different continents.
