Both are correct, and they mean just about the same thing.

Yes, you should say/write, "Stop at the red light." Don't use "on" for this sentence.

Yes, they're fine. Also these: OK! Sure thing. All right.

I don't know if what you wrote has been accepted by your teacher or if you got a good grade or not. Here's how I would have cut all this down: Freedom has always been one of my favorite things about summer. For ten weeks, I am free of schoolwork, poor grades, and disap...

#2 is incorrect. "been" is needed, as in #1. The second #2 is also incorrect ... the main verb "be" is missing.

English
#1 and #3 are the correct ones. #2 is often spoken, even though it's incorrect. #4 is incorrect, yes.

Wordy, wordy, wordy ... I'm not reading anymore. Sorry.

Yes, they mean the same.

No. The first and second are grammatically correct, but don't mean the same thing. The third would be correct if you change "is" to "has."

Right

No, I can't do that because that would be writing the paragraph for you. I'm suggesting you ditch your first sentence because it's simply a repetition of your thesis. If you cannot read and get information from websites that have helped countless other students, I ...

I agree. Diurnal and nocturnal are opposites. If C were Day: night, that would be correct, but as C is written, they are in the wrong order. Warm and hot are not opposites. B and D are opposites, but I think B is the better choice since daytime is usually warmer (sometimes hot...

Keep working on getting rid of wordiness in that last sentence.

You should find ways to shorten this sentence: Therefore, to be free of homework, potentially poor grades, and disappointment is not only a relief but a wondrous joy, if only for a short period of time.

Biographical Essay Evaluation (Writeacher)
No. The point is to SHORTEN that sentence. Choose one ... pressure or backlog.

Biographical Essay Evaluation (Writeacher)
... the pressure of incomplete homework. or ... the backlog of incomplete homework. Two "of" prepositional phrases in succession in one sentence is a big signal that one of them needs to GO!!

Also, please note that "uncompleted" is not a standard word listed in many dictionaries: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/uncompleted?s=t

Some of the best papers of this type I've seen have used the in medias res technique. That is, the writer starts the story in the middle of things and then flashes back to write about what led up to it all. Here are some other ideas: http://www.google.com/#q=how+to+write+a...
