  1. 1. right

    2. Both are OK, yes.

    3. Use the preposition "at" if you mean you're trying to make the dogs go away. Use the preposition "to" if you want the dogs to play and bring them back to you!

    4 and 4-1 are the best. The others are OK, but not commonly used.

    5 is correct; the others are not commonly used.

    6. Numerals are generally not used as quantifiers, but the first two sentences in 6 are phrased correctly. The third question is phrased correctly, but 1) put a space after the colon, correct the spelling of "some," and put a question mark at the end.

    Here's a really good page (with a couple of quizzes at the bottom) explaining about quantifiers:
