We denote statements 1 to 4 as S1, S2, S3 and S4 and indicate any probable false statement as F and mark any probable true statement as T.

Then the possiblilities are:

S1....S2....S3.....S4.....Is This Valid?
F.......F......F.......F........... NO
F.......F......F.......T........... NO
F.......F......T.......F........... NO
F.......F......T.......T........... NO
F.......T......F.......F........... NO
F.......T......F.......T........... NO
F.......T......T.......F........... YES
F.......T......T.......T........... NO
T.......F......F.......F........... NO
T.......F......F.......T........... NO
T.......F......T.......F........... NO
T.......F......T.......T........... NO
T.......T......F.......F........... NO
T.......T......F.......T........... NO
T.......T......T.......F........... NO
T.......T......T.......T........... NO

From the above table, it is evident that the statements 1 and 4 are false while the statements 2 and 3 are true.
