For these six sentences, I have to explain what determines whether the sentence is grammatical or not

1) Both the students were studying.

2) The students were both studying.

3) They were both studying.

4) *Both they were studying.

5) Both of you were studying.

6) *You were both of studying.

I know "both" is predeterminer when it comes before central determiner like sentence (1) and (5) but I have no idea about the rest of them....
