    Yes, you are having some problems with these sentences.

    4. Please look up toward the skylight in the ceiling. (subject- you verb- look prepositional phrase- toward the skylight, in the ceiling adverb- up)
    "Please" is an adverb modifying "look."

    6. Are Annie and James lagging behind again? (subject- Annie, James verb- are lagging prepositional phrase- behind again adverb-none?)
    Both "behind" and "again" are adverbs, modifying "are lagging." Remember that prepositions ALWAYS are followed by a noun or pronoun.

    7. One of the players on the other team came over to talk to my brother. (subject- players verb- came prepositional phrase- on the other team, to my brother infinitive- to talk adverb-over)
    Oops -- you missed the subject.

    9. Rob will come along with us. (subject- Rob verb- will come prepositional phrase- along with us adverb- none?)
    The adverb is "along."

    10. Several girls rode by on their bikes and waved. (subject- girls verb- rode prepositional phrase- on their bikes and waved adverb- by)
    This sentence has two verbs.

    13. Please come by in the morning. (subject- you verb- come by prepositional phrase- in the morning adverb- none?)
    "Please" and "by" are adverbs.

    16. The shopper looked both ways at the intersection and hurried across. (subject- shopper verb- looked prepositional phrase- at the intersection and hurried across adverb- both ways?)
    This sentence has two verbs. The adverb is "across."

    Your other answers are correct.
