when

"When" is the correct answer in all four questions.

If the question concerns time, use "when" to mean "at that time."

Re:

1. Please tell John to come to my office, as you see him.
Question  One: as. according to the meaning of  exercise.你看到约翰时麻烦你告诉他到我办公室来一趟 It's a adverbial clause of time. you may  use comma to separate, so that it is easy to be understanded.
2. Be sure to write to us ____ you get home. ( while, when)
你回家时一定要给我们写信while express a longer period of time, 这是一个祈使句so  should fill in the word--when前后意思才协调
3. We rushed out to cover the cement ____ it began to rain. ( when, while)
当一开始下雨,我们就冲出去盖好水泥,(以防受潮)。用when表示在非常短的时间里
4. We were about to start for the park___ he came. ( when, while)
我们大约在他来的时候动身去公园的。不确定期间当然要用while

be about to do

be about to do 表示将来时,约等于will,只是它不能与确定的时间状语连用,而完全没有大约的意思。全句应解释为他来到的时候我们正要去公园。故应该用when
