Thank you for your answer. Would you let me know the sentences which are the same as Sentence 1 (#1)?

None of the other sentences is the same as #1. Sentences 2, 3, and 4 have similarities among themselves, but not to #1 ... unless you're interested in really trivial stuff, such as "they" and "their best" and "in the interview."

=)

Well, there is one other thing.

All four sentences begin with a subordinate (dependent) clause, and end with the main (independent) clause.
