    1) How many minute's gap should I keep between two sets of the exercise?

    2) How long should I wait before doing the next set?

    3) How long should I wait before moving on to the next exercise?

    4) How much gap should be there between two sets or exercises?

    I'd go with #2 or #3.

    The apostrophe is in the wrong place in #1. Also, you should use "leave" not "keep".
    You have a typo in #4 and a missing article.

    I told you that the apostrophe was in the wrong place in #1. I didn't tell you to remove it.

    2 and 3 are OK. You don't need to write them again.

    You have written #4 exactly the same way despite the fact that I already told you there is a typo and you have missed an article. I have just noticed that the word order is wrong too.

    In your next post, please just try again with sentence #1. After you get that right, we'll move on to #4.

    The apostrophe is now in the right place. Now read post #2 again and change the verb.

    OK, 1 is now correct. Let's move on to sentence 4. As I said, there is a typo (spelling error), a missing article and two of the words are the wrong way round (you have transposed them). Try again.

    I have underlined the parts that are still incorrect.

    I said that you had a typo (spelling error). Changing "or" to "in" isn't an example of correcting a spelling error - you've changed the word completely. Only one letter was wrong when you typed "or".

    What do you know about word order when constructing a question.
