Pandit Ishwarchand Vidyasagar (1820-91) received the title of Vidyasagarwhich means Ocean of Learning at the age of 21. He studied Sanskrit grammar, literature, Vedanta philosophy, logic, Astronomy, Hindu laws and also English literature and philosophy. He was appointed as the Principal of Calcutta’s Sanskrit college. His contribution to Bengali literature is very significant. He was not only an educationist but also a social reformer. The focus of his reforms was women. He spent his life for the cause of women empowerment, their education, to end the practice of child marriage andto initiate widow remarriage. So statement (1) is correct.

Raja Rammohan Roy (1772-1833) founded Brahmo Samaj in 1828. So, statement (2) is not correct

He reconstructed the Bengali alphabet and simplified Bengali typography into an alphabet of twelve vowels and forty consonants. He did so by eliminating the Sanskrit phonemes and a few punctuation marks while adding new letters to reflect contemporary pronunciation. So, statement (3) is correct.

@root can you provide the source for this.

As far as i know He received the title “Vidyasagar” (in Sanskrit Vidya means knowledge and Sagar means ocean, Vidyasagar stands for Ocean of Knowledge) from Sanskrit College, Calcutta (from where he graduated), due to his excellent performance in Sanskrit studies and philosophy.
