Correct Option is 1 and 2

It recognised for the first time, the political and administrative functions of the Company and it laid the foundation of central administration in India. It designated the Governor of Bengal as the Governor-General of Bengal and first, such Governor-General was Lord Warren Hastings. Hence statement 1 and 2 is correct.
