    Again, delete everything in parentheses.

    I don't understand #5.

    #6 is grammatically correct, but the content isn't -- present continuous is for indicating present actions; future continuous is for future actions.

    #8 is not a complete sentence.

    #10 http://www.answers.com/topic/tuxedo
    (yes)

    #11-12 -- either will do, depending on the shirt. The term "long-sleeved shirt" usually refers to a shirt with a collar, while any T-shirts do not have collars.

    #13 -- the 2nd one is better.
