3) En Passant is allowed.
En passant is a special rule that allows pawns to capture pawns on adjacent tiles under special circumstances. According to FIDE, the governing body of chess, the rule goes like this:
“A pawn attacking a square crossed by an opponent’s pawn which has advanced two squares in one move from its original square may capture this opponent’s pawn as though the latter had been moved only one square. This capture is only legal on the move following this advance and is called an ‘en passant’ capture.”
