You've posted several long assignments.
I'll give you some help on the questions you've left blank.
10. Subjects and verbs should always agree so that there is no confusion about who is doing the action.
11. Would you really say "There are a sandwich shop"?
13. Prepositional phrases. When I taught 7th and 8th grade English, the students learned to find the prepositional phrases before finding subject and verb.
14. I'd disregard all clauses.
16. not only . . . but also
17. Civics is singular

so 13 is prepositional phrases

Look what you'd have if you put parentheses around all of the prepositional phrases.
One of my best friends in school is going to Hawaii for her vacation.
One (of my best friends) (in school) is going (to Hawaii) (for her vacation).
All that's left is the subject and verb.
