Explanation:

Statement 1 is incorrect. Saint Nimbarka, also known as Nimbarkacharya, was not a contemporary of Akbar. He lived much earlier in the 13th century, while Akbar was the Mughal emperor in the 16th century.

Statement 2 is incorrect. Saint Kabir, the famous Indian poet and philosopher, was not influenced by Shaikh Ahmad Sirhindi. Kabir lived in the 15th century, while Shaikh Ahmad Sirhindi, also known as Mujaddid Alf Thani, was a Sufi saint and scholar who lived in the 16th and 17th centuries. There is no historical evidence to suggest a direct influence of Sirhindi on Kabir's teachings.
