  • English -

    1-3... all are correct and all are used.

    4-6 are all correct. We often say that children respect their elders.

    "upset" "embarrassed" and "surprised" all have very different meanings. The sentences are grammatically correct but do not mean the same thing at all.
    Check your dictionary for the differences in meanings.

    10-11 Both mean the same thing.

    12 and 13 are correct. You would want to use "got" instead of "get" in sentence 14. You can also say He evicted the beggar from his house.
