There are plenty of phrasal verbs which mean “to visit someone at their house for a short time”. For instance:
come over / come by / drop by / drop in / drop around / come around /call on / go over / go around / call in / pop by / pop in / drop around / call by / pop round / stop by / be over
I need 5 phrasal verbs which are used most frequently.
I’ve chosen these: come over / come by / drop by / drop in / drop around
The children promised to come over on Friday evening.
Joe said he'd come by later.
Dad, I might drop by/in/around for tea sometime this week.
Please correct the phrasal verbs which I’ve chosen.

Used most frequently by whom and in what contexts? Some of these may be more common in one of the variants, and others may be more widely used in certain contexts. It's not such a simple question to answer.
