    Thank you for your reply.
    But as to number 3, I looked up the dictionary and found one meaning of "shall":
    [formal or old-fashioned] used to emphasize that something will definitely happen, or that you are determined that something should happen
     The truth shall make you free.
     I said you could go, and so you shall.
    So in this case, is ''shall' still acceptable?
