You should execute these queries:

For example for i. (first case) you can use:
SELECT FName, LName, Email, count(*) howMany
FROM yourTable
GROUP BY FName, LName, Email
HAVING count(*)>1;

You will see which FName, LName and Email combination are repeated (are present more than once) and you will see how many records do you have for any of these combinations.
