Normally we won't respond until you give us your best guess, but I think you did that when you said they all look correct.

I can sympathize with your difficulty here becasue the correct answer is somewhat unclear for a beginner who tries to translate everything word for word.

Spanish has a special meaning for the form Tener+que+verb. It translates as to have to + do whatever the verb is. Tengo que salir. I have to leave. Tiene que estudiar para aprender. You have to study in order to learn. Terner + que+ verb signifies obligation to perform the verbs action..

Eduardo tiene __que\___|__ lavar las ventanas este fin de semana. Edward has to wash the windows this weekend.

If you search the discussion topics you'll find links to discussions of this and similar forms. I read one just yesterday. There are also lots of articles online if you Google Tener que.
