    It would be better if you avoid using the verb "get" whenever you can and use a better verb.

    1. He has been killed.

    2. I will do the job.

    3. Gas is over $3.00 a gallon.

    There are many possibilities, depending on the context of the sentence. Read through some of these so you can begin to sort out the differences:

    Overall, my suggestion still is that you work hard NOT to use any form of the verb "get" unless there's no other way to say what you mean.
