2a. is "Have you seen Jack recently."
Some Canadians/Americans might say, "Did you see Jack recently?" In that case, I guess the answer would be "No, I didn't see him for ages." - though don't quote me on this.
1A would also be "Did you do ..." if you are trying to learn this minority Am. dialect.

Note that you can get by quite well in America using the traditional English present perfect in these examples.
