    Your first and second answers are correct.

    3. Other explorers, restless and eager, sought freedom. Noun=explorers Adj=freedom
    Your noun is correct, but restless and eager are the adjectives that describe it. Freedom is also a noun, but doesn't have any modifiers in this sentence.

    4. They is a pronoun, not a noun. You're right about one of the adjectives, but missed the second adjective.

    5. Half right. There's another noun modified by two adjectives.

    6. Hunger and weariness defeated numerous travelers. Noun travelers Adj=hunger,weariness

    Your noun is correct, but your adjective is not. Note that hunger and weariness are also nouns -- and act as the subjects of this sentence.

    7. Correct

    8. You missed two nouns -- but they don't have modifiers.

    9. One noun is correct. You missed its adjectives. This sentence has another noun and modifier.

    10. Correct. Note that those is also an adjective.
