    1 and 2 are correct. 3 is not. The two have the same meaning.

    I agree with Mike, but for the sentences to have any meaning, you need to say what you have to do with the lemons.

    That's rather up to you. Do you want to follow up on Rover's point? If not, there is nothing else to be said. Mike answered your original question.

    I appreciate the promotion to Greek deity, but I'll stick with Mike for the time being.

    1. That's not really a question.
    2. Questions rarely stay unanswered for very long. So, yes. It's quite active.

    Venus, what is the matter with you? If your question has not been answered, tell us what you require. It doesn't help to repeat the same question over and over.
