Hi Quoc,

How did you come up with those sentences? Did you find them in a book?

.
The only sentence that a native speaker might say is (1).
The word of is missing in the sentence and I think adding it will clarify things for you:

1. Both of these two sentences are correct.

Sentence (1) means the same as:

Both of these sentences are correct.
-OR-
These two sentences are correct.
