The errors are in the choice of tense or the way the verb conjugation was done. Here are the correct ways of conjugating those verbs. You should decide why the errors were made and how to explain the error to the student.
(a) I have been a secretary for five years.
(b) I have eaten breakfast. OR
I've eaten breakfast
(c) She's liked him for six months OR
She has liked him for six months.
(d) When do you start work? (That is, what is your shift?), OR
When did you start work? (if you asking about the current day only)
(e) I’ve known her for three months, OR I have known her for six months.
