Dear Kit, thank you for your help and gave me a visual example! I know your meanings. However, I still need to decide which one or both are endogeous, which is a previous step of regression later. Only deciding the endogeneity first can I decide the equation ultimately. Could you please give me any suggestion ? Thank you very much!

Likewise for x2. If you ask "can we run the whole thing as OLS" there is sufficient evidence to reject. The result of a joint test cannot be predicted from those of its components; you can reg y x1 x2 x3 with insignificant t's on x2 and x3 (particularly if their correlation is high) but test x2 x3 will strongly reject. Likewise here.
