Given

(1) Are you studying in IIT?

(2) Sum of two irrational numbers is always irrational

(3) Every rectangle is a parallelogram

(4) There are only finitely many real numbers

(1) Are you studying in IIT is not a logical statement, it's a question.
(2) Sum of two irrational numbers is always irrational is a logical statement even though its false. We can decide logically if its true or false. For example (1 - $\sqrt 3 + 1- \sqrt 3$) is the sum of two irrational numbers, but its value is $2$ which is a rational number.
(3) Every rectangle is a parallelogram is a logical statement (and true).
(4) There are only finitely many real numbers is a logical statement (but false).
Therefore, (2), (3) and (4) are logical statements.
