  • English -

    1 and 2 mean the same thing -- 1 is more commonly used, though.

    3, 4, and 5 are all fine. All are used at different times. They mean about the same thing (almost no difference).

    6 and 7 are both correct, but 6 is more commonly used.

    8 is correct; you don't need "on" as in 9.

    10 and 12 are the most commonly used. The others aren't incorrect, just not smooth or used commonly.

    Yes, you can use "got" in place of "received" -- it's more like slang, but it's not incorrect.
