Q1: When we describe a figure or number between 20 and 30, we can say twenty odd or twenty something. Are there any other expressions with similar meanings?
Q2: Do we need to add a hyphen ie twenty-odd, twenty-something? I guess the use of a hyphen is optional. Is it true?
Q3: Is the above use confined to any particular use only? For example, in the use of an approximate age of a person, is it restricted to twenty something or, in other words, can “xxx something”, in fact, be used in any circumstances and is the use not confined to the reference to a person’s age?
Q4: The more difficult one is to express a figure or number between 10 and 20 as well as 0 to 10. To express a figure or number between 10 and 20, we can say a dozen or so, ten odd. Can we also say ten something? Are there any other expressions? To express a figure between 0 and 10, do we just say “ a few, a couple xxx”? Are there any other expressions?
Q5: when we refer to a person’s age between 13 and 19, we can say that he is a teen or a teenager.

Q6: To express a figure or number between 101 to 999 and 1001 to 9999, do we say a few/couple hundred , a few/couple thousand, in the hundreds of xxx , in the thousands of xxx?

Apologise for the many sub-questions. I hope that I could learn such similar usage in “one-go”.
