  • English -

    #1 - I prefer the second one although I've heard both.

    #2 - All three are correct, depending on what you mean. A white shirt is just that, and it could be worn to the office or wherever. A dress shirt means a shirt to be worn with a suit or tuxedo.

    #3 - Both are OK, but the first one is more commonly used.

    #4 - The second one is correct.

    #5 - It's better to say, "He has a cold, and he coughs a lot." Or "He has a cold and coughs a lot."

    #6 - The first one is the best; the fourth one is not bad if you delete "to."
