1 - Lenin’s influence and growing supporters allowed him to storm the government, capture the Tsar and become the new leaders. Or , it could be 3 as Trotsky helped significantly during the civil war and red army so without him they wouldn’t have been able to gain total control and be in power of all of the Soviets.

Or it could be 2 as Kerensky fatally misjudged the mood of the people.

It would be so, so interesting to hear the OP's views on this.
