Did you mean the following for number 15.

Under the rule of Punctuation within Sentences-Square Brackets.

Original: The sixth-grader had written in his essay that "his school experince had been deploreable [deplorable].

My answer:(Let me know if this is how it suppost to be originally.)

The sixth-grader had written in his essay that "his school experience had been delporeable" [deplorable}.
When you recognize that something within a quotation is incorrect (grammar, spelling, or whatever), then you can do one of two things:
1. leave the incorrect item alone, but add [sic] immediately after it -- to indicate that you understand it's an error
2. omit the error and put the correction in place of the incorrect word and put it in square brackets.
Since I think #2 is what your text/teacher is after, here's how I would revise that sentence:
The sixth-grader had written in his essay that "his school experience had been [deplorable]."
