  1. 1) c needs an article. It's optional for the other two.

    2) Use of articles in these phrases depends in part on how they're used in sentences. I'd use "the" in the second and fourth phrases.

    3) All of those are correct.

    4) Any of those three verbs is correct, although they have slightly different meanings.
