  1. 1 is fine.

    2 - all are OK, although the second one is not used much.

    3 - In France, "Jean" is for a male and "Jeanne" is for a female; in the US, "Jean" is for female (and "John" is for male).

    4 - The first one is correct -- the second one isn't.

    5 - In the US, the phrasing is "the gas station" - in other countries, it's "the petrol station."

    6 - Both are fine; "get" and "buy" both mean to purchase although "get" is more colloquial than "buy" is.
