(Are both OK?

  • Englsh -

    1. - means you will break it into pieces (usually so you can haul away all the debris).

    2. - means you will break it, but not necessarily demolish it.

    3 and 4 are fine, yes.

    6 is better than 5 -- and yes, because of "a" in front of "rest." (Check the spelling of "work" in 6.)
