  • English -

    1 is correct -- it simply means that a piece is not there. It could be falling at the moment or it could have fallen out or been missing for quite a while. Think of a pizza:
    (Broken Link Removed)
    Once that piece is gone that the person is lifting out, then you could say, "It was missing a piece.

    2 - good

    3 - The second sentence either needs to be reworded or connected to the first sentence. As it is, the second reads like a fragment, not a complete sentence. Try this:
    You should not pitch a tent near a river. When it is rainy, it's especially dangerous to pitch a tent near a river.

    4 - good; just correct the spelling of "safety."

    5 and 6 - good

    7 - good; you need to say what "it" is, though. Do you mean the ax might hurt you?

    All the rest look really good.
