Also as to 1, am I right?

Please tell me.
よろしくお願いします。
          
a post script :
I mean 2 is "if I eat an apple, I choose a red one".
A: @raito: It is used in formal situations. For example, "Should you have any questions, please contact xxx" I can imagine it being spoken to passengers in the train.
The 2 sentences are different because the first is a question. Should is only put in front when it's a question, or the structure like sentence 2. In questions, the tone of the last syllable is raised as an indicator. An emphasis is unnecessary :)
