    Option 2, transduction occurring from the taste buds

    Explanation:

    The taste buds on the tongue have specific taste receivers which are able to send sensation to the brain thereby allowing it to perceive the taste.

    There are specific chemical stimulation that represents a certain taste for example -

    Sweet taste is represented by sugars

    Salty taste is represented by sodium chloride and other salts

    Umami taste is represented by amino acid

    Sour taste is represented by acid

    Bitter taste is represented by alkaloids

    These chemical simulator stimulates the sensory neuron through which brain perceives the taste.

    Hence, option 2 is correct.
