    The very first line of your post is the most important: "Choose the correct answer". That instruction is for you. We do not do your homework for you. Do your own work, submit it to your teacher and then, if you don't understand any of the corrections, come back to ask us for help.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    You need to say what you think the answers are first.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    However, having said that, I need to point out the problem with the first question. "Pay lip service" means to not do anything but the question suggests there is some level of effort required. I expect the teacher is looking for minimal effort but the real answer is "fake it." I pity the person who has to choose between those.

    When you do come back to repost these sentences after you've had them marked, take care when you copy them. You have some punctuation and spelling errors. Remember the following rules, particularly the first:

    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
