2. Small length of inscriptions
3. Absence of bilingual texts
Which among the above is/ are correct reasons?

Answer: [C] 1, 2 & 3

All of them are the correct reasons. The first reason is that we don’t know what language they used. Then the inscriptions are so small that average inscription has only 4.6  signs. Longest single inscription at Indus Valley is 17 signs long. Then there are  no bilingual texts available.
