Find the major product in this reaction

my doubt is that the major product of this reaction should be option 2 but in sheet it is given that the answer is option 1 But how option one can be the answer as SO3H AND CH3 both are bulky grps so the replusion between them will be maximum. Pls guide me guys

NH3 is ortho para directing but in acidic medium the meta product must be also be considered and the ortho product is very minor. Still in the acidic medium Para product is major ( NCERT) and meta is also formed. So answer should be 1 because para position for NH3
