    1 is correct.

    2 is plain wrong (you’re mixing future and past tenses).

    3 is missing something either at the beginning or the end of the phrase like “You will be in trouble if you get caught doing that,” or “If you get caught doing that, don’t come crying to me.”

    4 is like 3 but the additional wording is conditional: “You would be in trouble if you got caught doing that,” or “If you got caught doing that you would be punished.”

    5 and 6 are correct (and practically interchangeable) depending on context.

    1.  Correct.

    2.  Incorrect.  "will" is future tense, "got" is past

    3.  Not a sentence, but correct as a phrase.

    4.  Not a sentence, but acceptable in dialogue or speech in American English.  The implication is "If you [had] got[ten] caught doing that..."

    5.  Correct.

    6.  This sentence is acceptable in the context of (4.) above.

    1.It looks errorless.

    2.An erroneous sentence.     In active voice sentences after the first auxiliary verb the next verb can't be either in past or past participle form.It will and must be in the base form.  A sentence, I will get my phone repaired tomorrow. Here " get" can never be turned into "got" or " gotten'.

    3.Correct

    4.Correct

    5.Correct

    6.Correct
