I'd say all 3 are OK. #1 is quite common in formal writing, #2 in speech.

You'd often write 'this matter'. In speech, you'd often just say 'this'.

Best wishes, Clive.

Do you agree that sentence 3 is not recommended for formal usage?
No - seems to me perfectly acceptable in a formal context.

Both "as to" and "regarding" appear frequently in formal registers. "About" is quite neutral in register.

Thank you guys.

Another question. Should I say "which of the sentences are correct" OR "which of the sentences below is correct" ?

Thanks Yoong Liat,

What if you think that there will be like 3 correct sentences out of 5. How do you convey that in your question?
