Explanations:

1. When the word ‘except’ is used ‘me’ is used with it instead of I, so the most appropriate form of this phrase will be except for you and me.
2. ‘Calculate’ is not an appropriate word for this sentence, calculation is done on the basis of available facts with certain fixed rules, whereas according to the sense of the sentence the person is only making a guess or a supposition, thus reckon is the most appropriate word that can be used to replace calculate.
3. ‘him’ is not the right usage because it is a possessive pronoun, and in the sentence it is followed by who, which is used to refer. So the pronoun he should be used. He, who has the best rapport with the students.
4. Different is used with ‘from’ e.g- ‘you are different from Ritu’. Than is used for comparisons, e.g., The world is more populated than it was in our time.

5. When we use the word ‘hardly’, it implies a negative meaning, there is then no need to use not, so the most suitable use is ‘he hardly had any friends’.
