    So sentences 2 and 4 are incorrect right?
    At the exam if we encounter those two direct sentences we should follow which one? 1 or 2 or 3 or 4?

    Sorry if I haven't understood it very well. It's my understanding problem not yours. You did well.
    Regards.
    As Kathvit posted, sentences 1 and 3 convey the intended meaning of the original speech. Sentences 2 and 4 are grammatical but do not convey the intended meaning.
