Different doses of the drug are administered to patients.

Some patients receive a "mock" injection that contains the same solution base and the same volume as the drug but does not actually contain the drug itself.

At least 1000 individuals are treated with the drug.

Patients at three different hospitals, each in a different state, are treated with the drug.

Both the second and fourth answers are correct.
