No, when using 还是 to query about choices or alternatives you do not put 吗 at the end of the sentence.

For example, 受灾 ,受影响,受欢迎 would all be examples of "receiving" or getting something intangible, whereas 收信 would be used for getting a physical letter in the post (remember those) and by extension getting a text message, even if that isn't literally tangible: 收短信

Becca, would it be fair to say that 受 is used for receiving something abstract, like receive a welcome, whereas 收 is for concrete or specific things, like receiving a letter ?

Thanks, very helpful. I hope that you were able to access the original script and did not have to type this from scratch. If the original scripts are made available to you I hope that future lessons can also include the transcripts, and that it is not too much trouble.
