    I agree with bhai about #2, but it would sound far more natural to me with 'people' instead of 'persons'.

    #4 is not entirely ungrammatical though #2 is better. I agree entirely that "people" would be preferable.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
