    1. False - Max Ferdinand Perutz shared the 1962 Nobel Prize for Chemistry with John Kendrew.

    2. False – He was known (won the Nobel Prize) for his studies of the structures of haemoglobin, NOT discovery.

    3. Not Given – The paragraph has lots of information about the achievements of Max Perutz (name and year). It talks about his achievement in 1992, but it doesn’t directly mention anywhere that he deserved this accomplishment, and he got that in 1992.
