When a lift is going up with uniform acceleration, the apparent weight of a person is
When the lift is stationary, his apparent weight is
When the lift falls freely his apparent weight is
When the lift is going down with uniform acceleration which is less than the acceleration due to gravity, his apparent weight is
The increasing order of these four weights is
