The decision of the supreme court in the 1896 Plessy v. Ferguson case is important because it
1) upheld the legality of sharecropping
2) denounces the violence of the Ku Klux Klan
3) approved separate but equal facilities for black Americans
4) declared slavery to be illegal.

I did read it. I am just confused between 1 and 4 because my teacher was talking about something regarding sharecropping related to Plessy v. Ferguson case today and i didn't get it.

You sure didn't get it.
Here's the first paragraph of the Wikipedia article linked above.
"Plessy v. Ferguson, 163 U.S. 537 (1896), is a landmark United States Supreme Court decision in the jurisprudence of the United States, upholding the constitutionality of state laws requiring racial segregation in private businesses (particularly railroads), under the doctrine of "separate but equal"."
