1,2,3,4,5,6,7 are ok.

8. sqrt (3x^2) = x*sqrt(3) Check that.

9,10,11 ok.

12.

sqrt(3)*sqrt(27) = sqrt 3*sqrt(3*9)

9*sqrt(9) = 9*3= 27. Check that.

check 15. I think you just wrote it wrong. I get 1/5*sqrt(10). Check that.

The others look ok.

I agree with DrBob

I should have checked them a bit less superficially.
