    It's impossible to tell which are correct because the sentences aren't grammatical in the first place.
    "_____I had master's in business administration." is not a sentence using any of the words. (I assume there should be a comma there. Nor is the next "sentence" right.
    Anyhow, as it stands, 1: wrong, 2: wrong, 3: impossible to say, 4: correct, 5: would be OK if that was the start of a new sentence.
