Hello! It didn't help to say that I am an exchange student and it is hard to do for me. No excuse! You have to do it though.
Can anybody help me to find euphemism for these phrases?
1. lying on a resume
2. cheating on a test
3. committing adultery
4. cheating the IRS
5. death penalty
6. failing to graduate from High School
7. flunking out of college
10. murder of one's sprouse or partner
Thank you, guys! I would really appreciate it because I have absolutely no idea!

This is a rather interesting collection of quotations from some people (some well known, others not):
I found this by using Google and entering euphemism for lying. Change the search terms a bit for different possibilities.
Sometimes a good thesaurus will work, too:
