    1 is correct.

    2 is not appropriate for anything.

    Re: "the whole of last week"

    Despite the repetition, you'll frequently hear "I was busy the whole week last week".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    In AmE, you'll usually hear ​I was busy all last week.
    I am not a teacher.
