Student or Learner
I have always been confused about the usage of "get" and "be", for example, in the following scenorio can you please tell me should I use get, be, or should it be/get omitted
1) When will the shop be opened.
1b) When will the shop get opened.
1c) When will the shop open.
2) He was driving the car at high speed so the tyre got burst.
2b) He was driving at high speed so the tyre bursted.
3a) The car got damaged by the accident.
3b) The car damaged by the accident.

Until you become more proficient, I recommend avoiding using "get/got" unless you are using it in place of "to obtain/buy/receive". If you use it that way, you will almost never be wrong:
I got a cat - I obtained a cat.
He will get a hat = He will obtain a hat
He got a present from his friend = He received a present from his friend
I am going to get you a present = I am going to buy you a present.
Note that some English teachers are teaching "to have got" instead of "to have". Because of that, you might see "get/got" more often, but if you are finding it difficult to understand how to use it, stick with my suggestion above for now.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
