    I think 2, 3, and 4 are correct.

    Rethink #1 -- the missing punctuation at the beginning has misled him about what the first sentence is:
    People of all ages can play basketball. Young children join sports clubs in their towns and learn how to dribble, pass,and shoot.

    With the correct capitals and punctuation, have him re-think #1.

    Yes, your son is right.

    The next time you post, please start your sentences with capital letters. They will make it easier for us to read your posts.
