English
1. "has taken" means it happened in the past and is still happening now. (Also, you need to change "fightings" to "fighting" -- there is no plural form for that word.) 2. "took" means it happened in the past and does not continue into th...

I would simply define "something" as "a topic." So I guess it's #1.

Sentences 1 - 6 are fine as long as you remember to capitalize the first letter of each one. I'd rephrase #7 a bit, though: Some are blue, some are yellow, and one is white.

English
Both sentences are referring to past jobs. Both can also mean that the person's current job is included in his/her total number of jobs.

English
In this sentence, it's an impersonal pronoun that doesn't refer to any particular noun. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It_(pronoun)

You've added too many details for this to be a topic sentence for one paragraph. Just write this: Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia had very different types of governments. The details belong in the supporting sentences, not the topic sentence.

I disagree. A is out -- this is dealing with the sense of smell, and you're after a vivid scene (sense of sight). B is out -- passive image here. How will you analyze C and D?

#1 can mean both 2 and 3 in this context.

I've never seen this show. Maybe someone else has. It's probably similar to Britain's Got Talent and America's Got Talent and The Voice, I imagine, but I haven't watched those either!

#1 is correct. And the answer to both questions is 'yes.' =)

English
All are grammatically correct, yes. However, "autobiography" means that he wrote it himself, so the second sentence in each passage is repetitive and not needed.
