    Welcome to UsingEnglish, ENG.

    Your question would have been better in the 'Ask a Teacher' Forum, so I have moved it there. In future, please give your threads a title that tells us what the question is about. 'Sentence correction' would have been appropriate for this one.

    1. Bills only. No change given.

    Keep it short. 'Paper' is superfluous for bills (BE banknotes).

    OK, Rover! Keeping it short in AmE: 'Exact change only'
    Most vending machines in North America will not issue a receipt for minor purchases.
