    There are far too many combinations given for me to give a meaningful answer. Please write out the various combinations in separate sentences and we will be able to comment.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    And add a comma after "consequence" in #1.
