3)~도록?(means 'until')

It is usually used as a quesition(which is abbreviated) against one direction.

for example,

너 이거 다 끝맞쳐야 돼. ( you need to finish it up.)

날이 다 새도록?(until the dawn??)

and it's not usual expression.

If you want to express it essentially, you'd better use "~까지?"

 

They are very difficult, aren't they??

Hi, 

I understand your difficulty to distinguish them.

Korean is tricky,

I think the best way to learn Korean is to learn formal spoken Korean.

Your question is about informal spoken Korean.

Each ending is used in many ways.

I can't give you one direction.

1) ~는거? (~는거에요? in formal way) 

this is one of the endings of question sentences.

너 뭐하는거? (what are you doing?)

이거 뭐에 쓰는거? (what is this used for?)

이렇게 하는거?(is this right?)

2) ~걸? (~걸요? in formal way)

It's not question but speak one's opinion.

아닐걸? (I don't think so)

너 멋진걸? (You look cool)
