All are correct. You could also say, "If you are right, you'll get a point card."

1 is correct; 2 is not. Among the others 4 is best. 3 would work in you added "a" in front of "Sunday." In 5 and 6, repeating the word "on" is unnecessary.

1 could mean simply that he is early getting to school or work, whether he wants to or not! 2 definitely means he functions much better in the mornings than later in the day. In place of 3, I'd write "She is a night owl." 4 and 5 are fine!

1. Either preposition works fine. 2, 3, and 4 -- "in hospital" and "to hospital" are UK expressions. Adding "the" is the normal expression in the US. In both expressions, it's the generic use of "hospital." If someone meant a ...

Yes, in #1, "The Beatles" is referring to the band as a whole, not as the individuals. And in #2, the reference is to each Beatle separately -- that all of them were not happy.

1 and 2 are fine, but 3 and 4 don't work. You might rephrase 3 and 4 to mean that you need to check on something and the caller shouldn't hang up. Please hold while I find that information. Please hold while I look for Mr. Jones.
