comment Using “page” in these sentences? (using counters and の to modify a noun)
No, 2 is certainly grammatical and it can even be meaningful: "Read the book on the 6th page", for example "Read the book listed on the 6th page of this pamphlet".

comment What word is a good replacement for から used as “because” in informal speech?
@emodendroket I was trying to say that many expressions using から (including the から meaning "because") can be replaced with expressions using で. I didn't claim that the result will always preserve meaning or nuance. In any case, my recommendation is to stick with から.

comment How to begin a reply to a question?
I think that はい、わかりました might be used in the same context, but its purpose is not to be a mere filler. It has content. えっと, or そうですね don't.
