    Welcome to the forum.

    If you are the student, say so. Don't try to distance yourself. If you are not the student, tell him to join the forum and post his own requests

    ps. I did do as you asked.

    I've done it, but it forces one choice, when I may use one form colloquially and one in anything more formal.

    I've done it too, with the same reservations as Tdol. I might use one version of "Hello" to my friends, another to my colleagues, another to customers/clients. That's not necessarily the case but the survey needs to allow for it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you for your help! I agree with your comments, actually, that in different situations we use different greetings and different styles of speech. But I came to the conclusion that it would be easier to make statistics. PS I'm not a student, but there are some reasons why I am helping to do this research. College in Russia is a branch of primary and secondary professional education, they study here electrical installations, welding, cooking. A lot of students came to college from other towns, not every student has an access to internet, you know.
