The correct option is A
1 and 3 only
Explanation:

Seafloor spreading disproves an early part of the theory of continental drift. Rather, Seafloor spreading helps explain continental drift in the theory of plate tectonics. Seafloor spreading occurs at divergent plate boundaries, and it varies in its intensity and magnitude along different mid-ocean ridges.
