KO, especially suited, hits a lot for me it seems. Medium pocket pairs are tougher to win so not a fan beyond set mining if price is right.

Would really depend on my position, stack, if in tourney or cash and who i'm playing against. Would go back and forth depending on those factors. Sitting down cold and being on the button? Always take the pair.

10s every time. it does much better against ranges, even with multiple opponents than kq does. i'm sure there might be a very specific situation where kq might perform better but, in my random equity tests, 10s outperformed kq.
of course, thats only in all-in situations where the river is guaranteed. in situations where there is post flop betting, it could be a bit different. i think i still pick 10s over kq as i think they're much easier to play post flop. kq can get you into a lot of trouble on some flops, either by missing draws, being out kicked, etc.
I will choose TT, I think TT is much stronger than KQ.

In my opinion, TT is more worth than KQ. I am very careful with KQ, especially in longhand no limit cash games. In early position I generally fold KQ as this hand cannot be played profitably out of position. In a later position I try to have the initiative with KQ through an open raise. This makes it easier for me to play with KQ. With KQ you can easily be dominated. If your opponent has an ace, you're already behind. In TT there are only a few hands that clearly dominate you (JJ +).
Well it will depend a lot on the position I am in .... I particularly like the pair of "10 10" from late position .... I will definitely play it .... and the KQs hand is fantastic .. .. and in the same way, I would first take into consideration the position in which I find myself
