1, 2 and 3
Explanation :
The Non-cooperation movement began with Mahatma Gandhi renouncing the titles, which were given by the British. Other leaders and influential persons also followed him by surrendering their honorary posts and titles. Students came out of the government educational institutions. National institutions like the Kashi Vidyapeeth, the Gujarat Vidyapeeth, Bihar Vidyapeeth and the JamiaMilliaIslamia were set up in many provinces. All the prominent leaders of the country gave up their lucrative legal practices and legislatures were boycotted. No leader of the congress came forward to contest the election for the legislatures. Hence all the statements are correct.
