  1. 2 and 3 are correct.

    The term "upper hand" means that a person or country has control over that time or place. Since Japan had control of almost the entire Pacific in 1942 (immediately following their attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii), it was the Japanese who had the upper hand, not the Allies.
