Please -if you are able to make so much time for this - explain the situations in which every particular sentence could be used (put their numbers in order of your preference) or put every sentence in a context consisting of at least 5 sentences.

This time I've really asked your hard work. :oops:

But I look forward to hearing from you about this.

Thank you
