You use yo for I/me, tú for you (informal, as if you're talking to a friend), él when you mean him, ella for her, nosotros for we, ellos for a group of guys/or guys and girls, ellas for a group of girls only, Ud. for you (formal), Uds. for all of you. I will start you off and be glad to check the rest of your answers.
2. Ud. (you want to be formal here!)
Note the difference between referring to and talking to someone. Post the rest of your answers to be checked if you wish.

I remember doing the first one for you, but you need to do the rest of them.
In Spain, talking to 2 girls, a professor would use "vosotras."
