[Answer] Read the passage below about different types of radiation.Different types of radiation have different penetrating abilities. For example gamma rays can pass through cloth and paper but alpha particles are blocked by cloth and paper. Beta particles are blocked by aluminum foil but gamma rays are not. However all three types of radiation are blocked by thick concrete or lead.Now examine a table of penetrating powers of different types of radiation.Material123Lead Stopped Stopped StoppedCloth Not stopped Stopped StoppedAluminum foil Not stopped Stopped StoppedWood Not stopped Stopped StoppedPaper Not stopped Stopped Not stoppedThick concrete Stopped Stopped StoppedBased on the information at which numbered spot in the table does each type of radiation belong?

Answer: 1 = gamma; 2 = alpha 3 = beta
