    They all could be correct for various reasons, depending on what you're writing. But a 4th grade teacher would have a different opinion about which is/are correct. Please tell us your choices for correct and incorrect -- and why you made those choices.

    Thanks for your time.

    See first of all I want one to be used anywhere anyhow!

    But I want a literally correct one for a literary fiction.

    I personally use these ones :
    Lookie what we have here!
    Look what we've got.
    What do we have here?
    What have we got here!

    And I was wondering which ones are correct from grammar pov.
