    1. right

    4 and 4-1 are the best. The others are OK, but not commonly used.

    5 is correct; the others are not commonly used.

    6. Numerals are generally not used as quantifiers, but the first two sentences in 6 are phrased correctly. The third question is phrased correctly, but 1) put a space after the colon, correct the spelling of "some," and put a question mark at the end.

    Here's a really good page (with a couple of quizzes at the bottom) explaining about quantifiers:
